The Old Hose House is a historic fire house at 1249 Main Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The Colonial Revival wood frame building was constructed in 1902 for a cost of $1,180.50, plus $10 for the land on which it stands. The modestly-scaled building housed a fire truck until 1930, after which time it has served as home to community groups.[2]

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