The Davenport Homestead is a historic structure in Creswell, North Carolina. It is best noted and historically significant for being built by Daniel Davenport, the first Senator of Washington County.

Built in the year 1800, the Davenport Homestead provided housing for Davenport, who was mostly a farmer. He had 1211 acres of land, and raised a wide variety of crops and livestock. He also served the North Carolina Senate from 1800 to 1807 and passed many bills, with the most notable one being the construction of a drawbridge crossing the Scuppernong River.

The Davenport Homestead is currently available for self guided tours regularly. There are also guided tours for school kids, seniors, and large groups every Friday. The site is also home to the annual Davenport Heritage Day.
