The Samuel J. Wright House, also known as the Greek Revival Cottage, is an historic house at 59 Rice Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. This modest 1.5-story Greek Revival cottage is one of the finest of its type in northwestern Cambridge. It was built in 1847 by housewright Samuel J. Wright. It features a fully pedimented gable end, original pedimented gable dormers on the left side, and fluted columns supporting an entablature. The side-hall front door is flanked by full-length sidelight windows and pilasters.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
