The House at 307 Lexington Street in Newton, Massachusetts, is a well preserved small scale Greek Revival house. The 1 3/4 story wood frame house was built c. 1860, and has a steeply pitched gable roof with paired gable dormers on the side, and a round-arch window at the top of the gable (an Italianate feature). The front gable hangs over a full width porch supported by Doric columns. A classic entablature encircles the house.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
