The Samuel Parker House is a historic house at 132 West Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The front, gambrel-roofed portion of this house, was probably built in the mid-1790s, and the house as a whole reflects a vernacular Georgian-Federal style. The house is noted for a succession of working-class owners (of which Samuel Parker, a cooper, was one). Its most notable resident was Carrie Belle Kenney, one of the earliest female graduates of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.[2]

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