The Dr. Joshua Lathrop House is a historic house at 377 Washington Street in Norwich, Connecticut. The house has two parts, an older saltbox section, and a typical five-bay Georgian 2-1/2 story frame structure. The house was built c. 1750 by Joshua Lathrop, who operated a drugstore with his brother Daniel. It is historic due to the possibility that Benedict Arnold lived in this house during his apprenticeship with the Lathrops.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 29, 1970.[1]
