The Arad Alexander House is a historic house at 53 Waverly Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The two story wood frame house was built c. 1845, and is one of Worcester's most elaborate Greek Revival houses. Its main block follows a side hall plan, and the front facade is a full temple front, with Corinthian columns supporting a full entablature and triangular pediment. Its original location and builder are unknown (although the later may be the locally prominent Elias Carter, based on stylistic evidence); the house was moved to its present location in the 1860s by Arad Alexander.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
