The Stephen Hall House is a historic house at 64 Minot Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 1-1/2 story wood frame house was built in the 1850s, and is one of Reading's best examples of Gothic Victorian residential architecture. It has board-and-batten siding, long and narrow windows, and a central projecting gabled overhang with Gothic arched windows and a deep eave with brackets. Although it appears to be a near copy of a design published by Andrew Jackson Downing, its plan was apparently copied from a house in Wakefield, and is lacking some of Downing's proportions.[2]

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