The Rowhouses at 256-274 Haven Street (also known as the Edward Manning Houses) are a series of historic rowhouses at 256-274 Haven Street in Reading, Massachusetts, USA. They were built in 1886 by Edward Manning on the site of a millyard that had been destroyed by fire a few years before. The rowhouses are in a Greek Revival/Italianate style, unusual given that these styles had passed out of fashion by that time. They are the only period rowhouses in Reading.[2]

The rowhouses were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
