The Job Lane House is a historic house at 295 North Road in Bedford, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side-gable roof, clapboard siding, and a stone foundation. A leanto section to the rear gives the house a saltbox profile. The house was built c. 1713 by Job Lane, one of Bedford's earliest settlers, on land acquired by his grandfather (also Job Lane) in 1664 from Governor John Winthrop.
There are a number of planned activities that take place on the site each summer. Information on these, and other possible uses of the property, as well as considerable interesting historical and genealogical facts about the builder and subsequent owners, can be found on the site's web page: http://www.joblanehouse.org.
