Enoch Wright House is a historic building in Peters Township, Washington County, Pennsylvania, United States. The house was built about 1815 by Enoch Wright on land he inherited from his father, Joshua, who moved to the area about 1772. Wright family members lived in the house until 1862, then they rented it out. In 1972 they donated the house to the Peters Creek historical Society which now uses it as a museum.

Bricks for the house were manufactured on site. The house was built for two families, with separate kitchens on each end. The houses's 12 room each have their own fireplaces.
