The Joseph Damon House is a historic house at 178 South Street in Reading, Massachusetts. This 2.5 story timber frame house was built c. 1754, and probably moved to its present location in the late 1790s, at which time its central chimney was replaced with twin chimneys. The saltbox form, although a common colonial-era design, was relatively rare in Reading.[2]

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