Tate House, also known as The Cedars, is a historic home located at Morganton, Burke County, North Carolina. The core was built about 1850, and is a two-story, three bay, brick mansion with a center hall plan in the Greek Revival style. It was remodeled in the Second Empire style in 1868, with the addition of a mansard roof and large three-story octagonal tower. It was the home of Samuel McDowell Tate (1830–1897), who undertook the 1868 remodeling.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
