The Edwin Bassett House is a historic house at 115 Prescott Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1850 by Edwin Bassett, a maker of shoes for children and infants. The Greek Revival house has a fully pedimented gable, a rare feature in Reading. Three bays wide, the house follows a typical side hall plan; its entry is flanked by flat pilasters.[2]

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