The Parker House is a historic house at 316 Haven Street in Reading, Massachusetts. It is a two-story wood frame cottage, two bays wide, with a front-facing gable roof, clapboard siding, and a side entrance accessed from its wraparound porch. It is a well-preserved example Queen Anne/Stick style, with high style features that are unusual for a relatively modest house size. Its front gable end is embellished with Stick style woodwork resembling half-timbering, and the porch is supported by basket-handle brackets.[2]

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