The Mason–Watkins House is a historic house at the northwest corner of Old Walpole Road and Mine Ledge Road (RD #2, Box #316) in Surry, New Hampshire. The 2-1/2 story timber frame house was built in 1832, and is an example of the conservative persistence of Federal style architecture well after the Greek Revival had become popular in other parts of New England. The house is five bays wide, with a central chimney, and simple window casings. Interior woodworking is stylistically Federalist, drawing inspiration from Asher Benjamin's publications.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
