William G. Morgan House, also known as "Morgan Acres," is a historic home located at Bunker Hill, Berkeley County, West Virginia. It was built in 1849, and is a two story, nine bay, brick dwelling in the Greek Revival style. It is a long, narrow building with a central block and side wings, measuring 75 feet long and 21 feet deep. It features a one story entrance portico with Doric order columns. The entrance has a Chinese Chippendale transom. Also on the property is a brick outbuilding with heavy board-and-batten door. It was built by William G. Morgan, great-grandson of Morgan Morgan, West Virginia's first white settler. The property was determined in 1924 to be the site of Morgan Morgan's first crude shelter built in 1726.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
