The Glebe House is a historic house in Bath, North Carolina. It is a two-story structure located adjacent to the historic St. Thomas Church.

Believed to have been built around 1827 to 1832 by Jesse B. Lucas, the Glebe House is best known for its association with Dr. John F. Tompkins. Dr. Tompkins owned the property in the 1840s. He is famous for being an agricultural reformer and the founder of the North Carolina State Fair.

After Dr. Tompkins, the Glebe House was sold to William Bonner. Bonner consequently passed it to the Williams family who resided on the house for 60 years. This is why the house is also known as the Williams House today.
Since the Glebe House is used as a private residence, it is not available for tours.
