The Jabez Weston House is a historic house at 86 West Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The older portion of this 2.5 story timber frame house was built c. 1779 in a late-Georgian early-Federalist style. This portion consisted of a five bay section with a centrally located front door. Sometime (probably still in the 18th century), an eastern extension added three bays and a second entrance, converting the building into a two family residence. The property belonged to the Weston family, who were early settlers of the area.[2]

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