The Benjamin Beard House is a historic house at 251 Ash Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 1.5 story wood frame house was built in the early 1850s, and is an excellent local example of Greek Revival style. It is laid out in what was a fairly common local variant, with the long spine of the house parallel to the street. There are pilasters on the corners, and the front entry has a somewhat Federal style high entablature. Benjamin Beard, its first owner, was the town's first watchmaker.
