The Rufus Choate House is a historic house at 14 Lynde Street in Salem, Massachusetts.[2] It is primarily recognized for its association with lawyer and Federalist Party politician Rufus Choate (1799-1859), who lived here from about 1825 to 1834. It is a three story Federal style wood frame house that was built in 1805 by Ebenezer Beckford, a Salem merchant and real estate developer. Beckford, and later his same-named son, owned the property until 1841.[3]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
