The Gideon Hawley House is a historic house at 4766 Falmouth Road (Massachusetts Route 28) near the Cotuit village of Barnstable, Massachusetts.

Description and history[edit]

The Georgian style house was built c. 1758 by missionary Gideon Hawley, who ministered to the nearby Mashpee Wampanoags, and he lived there until his death in 1807. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, four bays wide, with a side gable roof, wood shingled exterior, and a slightly off-center chimney that is not original. The entrance, located in the second bay from the left, is flanked by pilasters and sheltered by an early-20th-century portico. A rear kitchen ell is probably a 19th-century addition. The house was moved back from its original site during a road widening project in 1920.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on March 13, 1987.[1]
