The Kingsbury-Whitaker House is a historic house at 53 Glendoon Street in Needham, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house has at its core elements of a house that was built on the site in 1707. The old house, built by Deacon Timothy Kingsbury, became the significantly-altered nucleus of a larger house built in 1840 by Edward Whitaker, a prominent local businessman.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
