The Sylvanus N. Staples House is a historic house at 21 Second Street in Taunton, Massachusetts. The Greek Revival 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built in 1837 by Sylvanus Staples, a leading merchant of the Weir Village area of Taunton. Staples (1811-1893) went to sea as a young man, and was by the 1830s a successful merchant, dealing in flour and groceries. He greatly expanded is business during the 19th century, and died in this house in 1893.[2]

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