The Wingent House is a nineteenth-century farmhouse located at 6231 North Canfield Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. One of the oldest surviving farmhouses within the Chicago city limits, the building received Chicago Landmark status on July 31, 1990. It is part of the Norwood Park neighborhood.
The house was built in 1854 as the home of John Wingent, a German immigrant who had fled his home country due to religious persecution. A two-story Italianate style section was added between 1868 and 1875. The Wingent House is one of the few extant buildings in Chicago that predate the Great Fire of 1871.
