The Ginery Twichell House is a historic house at 17 Kent Street in Brookline, Massachusetts. The 2 12-story wood-frame house was built c. 1844–55 by Ginery Twichell, a leading Massachusetts politician, as well as a nationally prominent stagecoach and railroad owner. Twichell lived at 40 Kent Street. The house is a well-preserved example of transitional Greek Revival-Italianate styling. Its massing and roofline are typically Greek Revival, but its gable ends and eaves have doubled brackets, and its windows are capped by scrollwork decoration.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
