The Alden Batchelder House is a historic house at 797 Main Street in Reading, Massachusetts. Built in the early 1850s, the 2 12-story wood-frame house is an excellent example of an early Italianate design. Its front facade has a central gable, a two-story projecting bay on the right side, and a porch that wraps around the side of the house. The first-floor windows are elongated, with deep moldings. The house was built by Alden Batchelder, a noted local cabinetmaker.[2]

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