The Batchelder House is a historic house at 607 Pearl Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1783 by Nathaniel Batchelder on the site of an earlier (c. 1703) home. Batchelder was a farmer and shoemaker, and his descendants continued to own the property and be involved in those trades through the 19th century. The house is architecturally most notable for its transitional Federal-Greek Revival door surround.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
