The David Bachrach House, also known as Gertrude Stein House, is a historic home located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a late 19th-century Victorian style frame structure consisting of two stories plus a mansard roof in height. It was constructed about 1886 and occupied by David Bachrach (1845-1921), a commercial photographer who figures prominently in the annals of American photographic history. Also on the property is a one-story brick building on a high foundation that was built for Ephraim Keyser (1850-1937) as a sculpture studio about 1890 and a one-story brick stable. Ephraim Keyser and Fannie (Keyser) Bachrach were brother and sister. Famous novelist and writer Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) was a niece of Mrs. David Bachrach [Fannie (Keyser) Bachrach] and lived in this house for a short time in 1892.

The David Bachrach House was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
