Z. D. Ramsdell House, also known as The Ramsdell House, is a historic home located at Ceredo, Wayne County, West Virginia, atop a mound claimed to be an Indian burial mound. It was built in 1857-1858, and is a two-story red brick and frame dwelling measuring 30 feet wide and 48 feet deep. It sits on a stone foundation and is in the Greek Revival-style with a gable roof. Zopher D. Ramsdell came to Ceredo at the invitation of the town's founder, and fellow abolitionist, Eli Thayer. He built a shoe and boot factory, served with the Quartermaster during the American Civil War, served as a post office inspector after the war, and served as a legislative representative in the West Virginia State Senate during 1868 and 1869.[2] It is open as a historic house museum.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
