Kenmure, also known as the William Lamb House, is a historic home located at Norfolk, Virginia. It was built in 1845, and is a three-story, three-bay, Greek Revival style brick town house. It was expanded to its three-story height in 1855. It features a central one-bay dwarf portico and a low, hipped roof topped by a three-bay cupola. Kenmure was built for William Wilson Lamb, mayor of Norfolk during the American Civil War, and later the home of his son, Confederate States Army officer William Lamb.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.
