Salmon Washburn House is a historic house located at 68 Winthrop Street in Taunton, Massachusetts. It was built in 1860 for prosperous local businessman Salmon Washburn, who ran a furniture, housewares and hardware business on Main Street.[2] The two-story house is built on a square plan with a low-pitch hipped roof and very broad cornice. Dominating the stucco façade is a bold, semi-circular-arched doorway inset with an elaborate cast-iron screen, cast in foliate pattern, in the transom area. The windows are capped by large decorative drip moldings.

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.

The Massachusetts Historical Commission Form B was incorrectly marked as "Samuel Washburn House".[3]
