The Luther Elliott House is an historic house at 309 Haven Street in Reading, Massachusetts. This modestly sized 1.5 story wood frame house was built in 1850 by Luther Elliott, a local cabinetmaker who developed an innovative method of sawing wood veneers. The house has numerous well preserved Greek Revival features, including corner pilasters, and a front door surround with sidelight windows and pilasters supporting a tall entablature.[2]

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