The Hoover-Minthorn House is a museum in Newberg, Oregon, United States, created from the house of Herbert Hoover, thirty-first President of the United States. Hoover lived there from 1885 to 1891, with his uncle and aunt John and Laura Minthorn. The Minthorns were administrators of the Quaker middle school Friends Pacific Academy, now George Fox University, where Hoover and his brother Tad attended.

The house, an Italianate design built in 1881, was restored and opened to the public in 1955. It is located on 115 South River Street, Newberg, Oregon.

The house was placed on the National Register of Historic Places (as the Dr. Henry J. Minthorn House aka Herbert Hoover House) in 2003.
