The Aldus Chapin Higgins House is an historic house at 1 John Wing Road, on the campus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), in Worcester, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story house was designed by Grosvenor Atterbury, although Aldus Chapin Higgins, the owner, had likely made sketches and other design notes for some years before hiring Atterbury. The house, whose exterior is faced in stucco, brick, and stone, is in the Tudor Revival style, and contains antique building materials imported from Europe. Among these are some of its leaded glass windows, and a fireplace mantel that came from an Italian monastery. Aldus Higgins was the son of Milton Prince Higgins, a local industrialist, and a graduate of WPI.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
