The Gen. Martin Kellogg House, also known as the Kellog-Eddy House, is a historic house museum at 679 Willard Avenue in Newington, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a center entrance and two interior chimneys. Its front entry has a fanlight above and is sheltered by an original portico supported by turned columns. There are two two-story wings extending to the side and rear, which were added in 1927-28. The main house was built c. 1808 by William Kellogg, the fourth of that name, who was a leading citizen of Newington. Primarily a farmer, he received his military title for service in the state militia. His house is now owned by the local historical society and operated as a museum.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on October 1, 1987.[1]
