Greer House is a historic home located at Rocky Mount, Franklin County, Virginia. It is a two-story, three bay, frame dwelling in the Greek Revival style. It has a low hipped roof and is sheathed on weatherboard. The front facade features a full width, one-story front porch topped by a balustrade. The building was started in 1861. It was originally "T"-shaped, until a series of three small building campaigns altered the form of the dwelling to resemble a square.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
