The House at 199 Summer Avenue in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story house was originally designed by architect Horace G. Wadlin and built in 1878 for Robert Kemp, leader of the popular Old Folks Concerts. The house was the second in Reading that Kemp had built; the first is also still standing. Originally in the Second Empire style with a mansard roof, the house was extensively altered in the 1890s, removing the mansard roof and adding Tudor Revival styling.[2]

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