The William Woodruff House is a historic house at 1017 East 8th Street in Little Rock, Arkansas. It is a 2+12-story brick structure, with a gabled roof. A single-story porch extends across the central portion of the front, supported by Doric columns, and there is a large gable dormer projecting from the roof, housing a pair of round-arch windows and a small half-round window in the gable. The core of the house was built in 1853 for William E. Woodruff, publisher of the first newspaper west of the Mississippi River.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
