The Aaron Martin House is a historic house at 786 Moody Street in Waltham, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built in the 1890s by Waltham Watch Company employee and real estate speculator Aaron Martin. It is a particularly well-preserved local example of Queen Anne styling. It has a variety of projections, gables, and porches, in a manner typical of the style, as well as a 3-1/2 story tower with a bell-shaped roof. Its porches are elaborately decorated with gingerbread woodwork.[2]

The house was built in a Queen Anne style and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
