The Ella Proctor Herrick House is a historic house at 189 Concord Street in the rural western part of Gloucester, Massachusetts. The oldest portion of this First Period house was built in the late 17th century; a brick found during in the central chimney bears the date 1672. The left side of the 2.5 story center chimney saltbox shows clear evidence of 17th century construction methods, and includes a rare example of a segmentally arched interior door frame. The structure to the right of the chimney was added in the 18th century, and there were some early 20th century additions. The central chimney is also a 20th-century replacement.[2]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
