The Inness-Fitts House and Studio/Barn is a historic house at 406 Main Street in Medfield, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built in 1836; it is a modest transitional Federal-Greek Revival structure. Southeast of the house stands a barn, probably built in the mid-18th century. It was adapted c. 1860 by artist George Inness for use as a studio. Inness lived here from 1860 to 1864.[2]

The property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002.[1]
