The Jefferson Cutter House is a historic house on the National Register of Historic Places and located at 1 Whittemore Park in the center of Arlington, Massachusetts. It houses the Cyrus E. Dallin Art Museum, dedicated to the sculptor Cyrus Dallin, who was a long-time Arlington resident.[2]

The building was built in 1830 in a Greek Revival/Federal style in a saltbox shape. The building which currently (2012) houses "the Arlington Chamber of Commerce, the Cyrus E. Dallin Museum and an art gallery, was originally home to [Jefferson] Cutter who...was born in Arlington (then still part of Cambridge) in 1803."[3] The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
