The Lucian Newhall House is a historic house at 84 Nahant Street (on its corner with Ocean Street) in Lynn, Massachusetts. The three story Second Empire house was built in 1866 for Lucian Newhall, descendant of early Lynn settlers and one of the first people to establish a shoe factory in the city. Newhall's house is a major presence in the Diamond District, where the city's elite lived. The house is notable for its cupola, ornate window styling, port-cochere, and columned entries.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (as being at 281 Ocean Street) in 1985,[1] and included in the Diamond Historic District in 1996.[2]
