The Amos Stearns House is a historic house at 1081 Trapelo Road in Waltham, Massachusetts. Built c. 1845, this 2 12-story wood-frame former farmhouse is a reminder of Trapelo Road's agricultural past. It has well-kept Greek Revival styling, including corner pilasters and an entablature with dentil moulding. A single-story porch wraps across the front and along one side; it has a similar entablature with dentil work. The house stands on property that was in the Stearns family from 1782 to 1941.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. Its listing describes it as being at 1079 Trapelo Road.[1]
