The Samuel Corning House is a historic First Period house at 87 Hull Street in Beverly, Massachusetts. It is a 2.5 story five bay house with a central chimney that was apparently built in stages, and is also notable for early 20th century preservation actions. The first portion, to the right of the chimney, was built c. 1700 as a typical First Period two story single cell structure. Around 1720 the left side was built, and a leanto section was added to the back at a somewhat later date.

John Singer Sargent (1856–1925). Quincy Adams Shaw McKean, 1917

The house was purchased in 1920 by Quincy Adams Shaw McKean, who made it a part of a Colonial Revival complex he and his wife had built on their 54-acre (22 ha) estate.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
