Home (also called Home City) is an unincorporated community in southern Franklin Township, Marshall County, Kansas, United States. As of the 2020 census, the population of the community and nearby areas was 154. It lies along U.S. Route 36 – the Pony Express Highway – and a Union Pacific rail line, east of the city of Marysville.

The community gets its name from the first post office, which was established in 1874 in someone's home. The post office eventually was moved to its own building, which is now facing possible closure due to postal service austerity measures.

In 1910, Home was a busy shipping point for grain and livestock along the St. Joseph & Grand Island Railroad. All of the main lines of business were represented including banking facilities, schools and churches, express and telegraph offices, and a post office with two rural routes. The population in 1900 was 450.

Its altitude is 1,345 feet (410 m), and it is located at 39°50′30″N 96°31′11″W (39.8416678, -96.5197389).
