The Phillip Walker House (also known as the Philip Walker House or Deacon Walker House) is an historic American Colonial house on 432 Massasoit Avenue in East Providence, Rhode Island. It is the oldest house in East Providence.[2]

Although originally thought to have been constructed in 1679, the current house was likely built around 1724 on the foundation of an earlier house. It is the oldest sawn timber-frame house in Rhode Island. The home was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1972. It has been owned by Preserve Rhode Island (PRI) since 1982 and used as a study house for historic preservation students and professionals. It is currently being rehabilitated with structural repairs, new utilities and a new kitchen and bathroom for residential occupancy by PRI's Property Manager.
