The Richard Ward House is a historic house at 71 Lowell Street in Andover, Massachusetts. It is a 1-1/2 story wood frame house, with asymmetrical massing characteristic of the Queen Anne style. It has a front gable with decorative cut shingles and an oriel window, and a porch with turned posts and balustrade. It is a locally distinctive example of a middle class Queen Anne style Victorian in a rural setting. It was built between 1885 and 1888 for Richard Ward, a milk dealer who had married into the locally prominent Abbot family.[2]

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