The Israel B. Mason House is an historic house at 571 Broad Street in Providence, Rhode Island. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, built in 1888 for Israel Bowen Mason, a wealthy merchant. It is one of the city's finest Queen Anne residences, with a visually complex assortment of projecting bays, verandas, turrets and gables. Particularly of note are its eastern porch and three-story octagonal tower. The house was designed by Alfred Stone, a prominent local architect, for Mason, a self-made successful wholesaler of grocery and meat products.[2] The house now houses a funeral home.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
