The James Alexander Veasey House, also known as the Veasey-Leach House, is a Colonial Revival style house in Tulsa, Oklahoma that was built in 1913. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989 "for its architectural significance as a local landmark example of the Colonial Revival style."[2]:9.[1]

It is included in the Buena Vista Park Historic District, later listed on the NRHP.[2]

It was designed by local architect John T. Blair.[3] The structure is a two-story Colonial Revival house. It is T-shaped, has clapboard siding and a gabled roof with a dormer centered above the entry.[4]
