The Bellingham-Cary House is an historic house at 34 Parker Street in Chelsea, Massachusetts.
The house was built in 1659 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. It was built by Richard Bellingham, who was governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony for three terms starting in 1641. The house was used as his summer house until his death in 1672. The house was significantly altered c. 1791 by Samuel Cary, who developed the property into a gentleman's farm, and added Federal styling to the house.
It has been owned and operated as a museum by the Gov. Bellingham~Cary House Association since 1912. It won the 2006 Massachusetts Historical Commission Preservation Award.
