Fountainhead in Jackson, Mississippi, also known as J. Willis Hughes House, is a Usonian house designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright in 1948.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.

The house was built during 1950-54 for J. Willis Hughes, who lived in it until January 1980.

Its 1980 NRHP nomination asserted it was the only Frank Lloyd Wright design in Mississippi, but in fact there are three other homes in Mississippi designed by Wright, in Ocean Springs.

Its name is a reference to Ayn Rand's novel, Fountainhead.

The Hughes House has been a private residence since it was originally built and has never been open to the public. It is owned by Jackson architect Robert Parker Adams.
