The Carroll-Hartshorn House is a historic First Period house at 572 Haverhill Street in Reading, Massachusetts. Built c. 1700, it is one of the oldest buildings in Reading, set on an early route between Wakefield and Haverhill. It has a classic two story, five bay, central chimney plan, with a rear shed extension giving the house a saltbox appearance. Its windows, some still with original surrounds, are narrower and taller than typical for the period. The property was owned by generations of the Hartshorn family.[2]

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