The Timothy Hartshorn House is a historic house at 379 Haverhill Street in Reading, Massachusetts. This 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1787 by Timothy Hartshorn, a farmer and shoemaker, and remained in his family for over 100 years. It is a vernacular Georgian-Federal style, with five bays and a central chimney. The main entrance is flanked by sidelight windows and fluted pilasters, supporting an entablature with high capitals, but is somewhat obscured by the 19th century porch.[2]

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