The Jedidiah Dudley House, also known as the John Whittlesey Jr. House, is a historic house on Springbrook Road in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. It is one of several Dudley and Whittlesey family houses clustered at a ferry landing in Old Saybrook, where lived operators of the ferry. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a steeply-pitched gable roof, and rests on a rubble fieldstone foundation. It was built c. 1750 by Jedidiah Dudley, but was lost and the family's financial condition ruined by disputes over the collection of customs revenues by Dudley. The house is a good local example of a vernacular Georgian house.[2]

The house is located about 200 feet north of Exit 68 of Interstate 95, and is identified as one architectural resource that might possibly be affected by an I-95 modification.[3]
