The Emma Willard House was a home of Emma Willard, an influential pioneer in the development of women's education in the United States. It was known as the Middlebury Female Seminary when Emma Willard established a school for girls at her home in 1814. The Middlebury Female Seminary was a precursor to the Emma Willard School, an all girl, private boarding and university preparatory day school in Troy, New York. It now houses the Middlebury College Admissions Office. It was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1965.[2][3]

It is located at 131 South Main Street (Vermont Route 30) in Middlebury, on the Middlebury College campus.
