The Lewis June House, also known as the Scott House, is a historic house at 478 North Salem Road in Ridgefield, Connecticut, USA. Built c. 1865, it is one of a small number of Second Empire houses in Ridgefield. It is a wood frame structure, 2-1/2 stories in height, with a mansard roof pierced by gabled dormers with elaborate trim. The eaves are studded with heavy decorative brackets. The center bay of the main facade projects, and a single-story porch extends further, supported by groups of square columns, with decorative capitals and bracketing. Lewis June, the builder, was involved in the circus business, and wintered some of his circus ponies on the property.[2]

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