The J. V. Johnson House is a historic house at 36 Riverview Avenue in Swansea, Massachusetts. This 1-1/2 Craftsman bungalow is locally distinctive for its use of stone as a building material and tile as a roofing material. It has the wide eaves and low-slung dormers characteristic of that style, as well as decorative terra cotta wall panels. Its designer is unknown; it was built in 1913 by Albert Leeming, a local contractor. Its first owner was a businessman who owned a local beverage maker, the Cliquot Club Soda Company.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
