The John Waddey Carter House is a historic home located at Martinsville, Virginia. It was reportedly based on a design by architect George Franklin Barber and built in 1896. It is a two-story, irregularly massed, gray frame weatherboard sheathed Queen Anne style dwelling. It features a dominant two-story central gable, an asymmetrical one-story wrap-around porch, and a polygonal corner tower. It is topped by a standing-seam metal-clad hipped roof with steeply pitched lower cross gables. It also has a two-story bay window and service ell.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1] It is located in the East Church Street-Starling Avenue Historic District.
