The John Tyler Morgan House is a historic home in Selma, Alabama. It was built in 1859 by Thomas R. Wetmore who later sold it to John Tyler Morgan in 1865. Morgan was a notable figure back in the day, being a former Confederate general and a local attorney. He also served as a Democratic US Senator from Alabama from 1876 for six terms.

The John Tyler Morgan House served as the principal residence of Morgan after he bought it. The property also housed the John T. Morgan Academy starting 1965 until 1967, when its new campus was completed. It currently houses the
Old Cahawba Administrative Offices of the Alabama Historical Commission.

In 1972, the John Tyler Morgan House was added to the National Register of Historic Places for its historical significance and its close relation to Morgan.
