The Parker House is a historic house at 52 Salem Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story vernacular Federal style wood frame house was built in 1792, although its center chimney may date from an older house built on the site in 1715. Jonas Parker, the builder, was active in the American Revolution. A portion of Parker's farm was dedicated as Memorial Park in 1919.[2]

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