The Patrick Henry Brittan House is a historic home in Montgomery, Alabama. It was built in 1858 by Patrick H. Brittan and also goes by the name Brittan-Dennis House.

Brittan was a Virginia native who learned printing in Washington, D. C. They moved to Alabama in 1843 and established the LaFayette Tribune. When they moved to Montgomery, he purchased half of the Montgomery Advertiser, which became the first newspaper in Alabama to be published with the use of a steam powered printing press. He established another newspaper known as the Montgomery Messenger and then served as a quartermaster general and then as the Secretary of State of Alabama.

Today, the Patrick Henry Brittan House operates as a living history museum under the ownership and management of the Old Alabama Town.
