The Hezekiah Palmer House is historic house at 340-408 Leete's Island Road in Branford, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side-gable roof, large central chimney, and a rear leanto section giving it a classic New England saltbox appearance. The main entrance is framed by pilasters, which support an entablature with cornice. It is estimated to have been built sometime before 1830 by James Palmer, although it has historically been attributed to Palmer's son Hezekiah with a later construction date. Its transitional Colonial/Greek Revival styling and construction suggest an earlier date.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on December 1, 1988.[1]
