The Samuel Bancroft House is a historic house at 232 West Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story timber frame house was built c. 1748, and may incorporate portions of an even older building. It was built by Samuel Bancroft, a locally prominent civic leader, who purchased the property in 1748. The house was later owned by Ephraim Weston, a businessman who built another house nearby and turned this house over to his son. The house has relatively plain Georgian styling; its entrance is a later addition, as are the bay window and a shed-roof addition.[2]

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