The Lewis House is a historic house at 276 Woburn Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in the late 1870s by John Lewis, a successful shoe dealer. The house is three bays wide, with a hipped roof with a single gable dormer. The roof has extended eaves with false rafter ends that are actually lengthened modillion blocks; these features give the house a Colonial Revival feel. The corner boards are pilastered, and the front entry is flanked by half-length sidelight windows and topped by a pedimented lintel, above which is a round fanlight window.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
