The Parkman Tavern is an historic tavern (now a private residence) at 20 Powder Mill Road in Concord, Massachusetts. It is a 2 12-story timber-frame structure, five bays wide, with a side-gable roof, large central chimney, and clapboard siding. It is estimated to have been built in the late 17th or early 18th century, by a member of the locally prominent Wheeler family. In the late 18th century it was purchased by William Parkman, great-uncle to historian Francis Parkman, who operated a tavern on the premises.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
