The Haverhill Street Milestone is a historic milestone on Haverhill Street in Reading, Massachusetts. Located on the east side of the road just south of its junction with Wakefield Street, it is a granite slab with a rounded top that is about 2.5 feet (0.76 m) in height (including the buried portion). It is marked "B / 12 / M", denoting the distance along what was historically the post road between Boston and Haverhill. Similar markers are found in neighboring Wakefield.[2]

The marker was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.[1]
