The Capt. Nathaniel Parker Red House is a historic house at 77-83 Ash Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story vernacular Georgian house was built sometime before 1765, and was already a well-known landmark because it was (unusually for the time) painted, and served as a tavern on the coach road. The house remained in the hands of militia captain Nathaniel Parker and his descendants into the late 19th century.[2]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
