The Jonathan Dean House was a historic colonial American house located at 175 Dean Street in Taunton, Massachusetts, near the Raynham town line. It was a 1-1/2 story Cape style house, five bays wide, whose entry was flanked by fluted pilasters, and cornice had a festooned frieze. It was built in 1766 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984. At the time, it was considered to be the most highly detailed 18th century house in the city.[2] However, the house was demolished in the mid-1990s for a pharmacy (now Rite Aid).[3]
