The Harnden-Browne House is a historic house at 60-62 Salem Street in Reading, Massachusetts, exemplifying the adaption of older buildings to new architectural styles. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1831 by Sylvester Harnden, likely in a Georgian-Federal vernacular style. Later in the 19th century it was restyled with some Queen Anne details, and converted to a boarding house. In 1928 it was owned by Thomas Browne, an Irish immigrant who first roomed in the house.[2]

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