The Francis Wyman House is a historic house at 56 Francis Wyman Road in Burlington, Massachusetts.

The earliest part of the house was built in 1666[2] with a major addition taking place in 1730. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[3]

On November 26, 1996, a fire severely burned the inside of the house. During the summer of 2012 the house will be open to the public for the first time ever. The house will be open for guided tours the first Saturday of the month, May thru September, from 1-4 pm.[4]

The house was named as one of the 1,000 places to visit in Massachusetts by the Great Places in Massachusetts Commission.[5]
