The Frank Burgess House is a historic house at 355 Highland Avenue in Quincy, Massachusetts.

It was built in 1913 for Frank Burgess, the owner of Boston Gear Works, who paid $14,000 for it. It was one of the first commissions of Cleveland and Godfrey, who went on to build at least two schools in Quincy.[2]

It is in a style known locally as "Prairie Bungalow", with elements of both the California Bungalow Style and the middle-west Prairie Style. It is unusual locally for its red tile roof, stucco exterior finish, and the Craftsman style portico with open rafters with shaped ends.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
