The Ephraim Weston House is a historic house at 229 West Street in Reading, Massachusetts.[2] It is incorrectly listed on the National Register of Historic Places as the Ephrain Weston House, at 224 West Street.[1] It was built in the early years of the 19th century by Ephraim Weston, a local real estate developer and businessman; he operated a local general store and a shoe manufacturing business, one of the early such businesses in the town. It is a two-sory wood frame structure, with a hip roof and two chimneys. The main facade faces south (not to the street, which lies to the west), and has a single-story porch extending across its width, supported by square posts. The building corners are pilastered, and a single-story bay projects from the west side. The house is locally distinctive as a rare Federal period house with a hip roof and later applied Italianate styling.[2]
