The John Glover House is a historic house at 53 Echo Valley Road in Newtown, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, clad in wooden shingles, with a side gable roof and a large central chimney. A series of additions extend from the rear of the house. The oldest portion was built c. 1708 by John Glover, who purchased the land from one of the first proprietors of the then-new township, established in 1705. Glover is the patriarch of a locally prominent family with a history of civic involvement.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001.[1]
