The Foscue-Whitfield House is a historic home in Demopolis, Alabama. It is also known as the Foscue House, which is the better known name of the site.

The Foscue-Whitfield House was built in 1840. Augustus Foscue had it built to serve as the main residence for his family in the plantation that has once surrounded the property. When Foscue died in 1861, his daughter Mary Alice Foscue was already married to Dr. Bryan Watkins Whitfield, the son of the Gaineswood owner. The couple inherited the house.

The Federal style Foscue-Whitfield House has stayed in the family from the time it was built until today. It was historically significant mostly for its architecture. This helped the property become listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
