The Capehart House is a Queen Anne Style house built circa 1898 by Charles P. Snuggs for Lucy Catherine Capehart and her second husband B.A. Capehart. It is located on 424 North Blount Street in Raleigh, Wake County, North Carolina. The house is one of the best examples of Queen Anne Style that is still standing in Raleigh. The Capehart House has an irregular skyline, made of towers, turrets, dormers, and pediments, and facades which are luxuriously ornamented with colors and textures such as stained glass and decorative wooden design.

After Capehart's death, H. H. Crocker owned the home until 1947 and it was used for apartments. In 1971 the state bought the house and it is now used as office space for the government. In 1979 the house was moved from its former location at 403 North Wilmington Street to 424 North Blount Street.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
