The Allen House is a historic building in Burlington, North Carolina. It is a part of the historic Alamance Battleground, where the 1771 rebellion of backcountry farmers (known as the ?Regulators?) against royal governor William Tryon?s militia took place.

The Allen House is a log structure believed to have been built in 1780 by John Allen for his wife Rachel and their family. The Allens were connected to the Regulator movement, as John?s sister was married to Herman Husband, a prominent figure in the group.

The Allen House has always been on the Allen family farm near Snow Camp. It was donated to the state of North Carolina by the descendants in 1967 and then moved to the Alamance Battleground.
