The James Noyes House is a historic First Period house at 7 Parker Street in Newbury, Massachusetts, USA. The house was built by the Reverend James Noyes, a Reformed pastor, who arrived in Newbury after landing in Ipswich in the mid-17th century.[2] The Noyes family came from Wiltshire in England. The house dates from about 1646. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]

The main block of the house is a ​2 12-story wood-frame structure, five bays wide, with a large central chimney. When the house was first built, it was only a single room deep; around 1800 a ​2 12-story cross-gable ell was added to the rear, which was further extended by a ​1 12-story ell later in the 19th century. The interior rooms of the main block have Federal period styling, probably dating to the time of the first addition.[3]
