The Warner House is a historic house at 307 Town Street in East Haddam, Connecticut. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side gable roof and a large central chimney. Its construction date is unknown, but appears to be mid-18th century, with an enlargement c. 1790. It has exceptionally high quality woodwork inside, and is notable for its ownership by John and Oliver Warner, two locally famous makers of hardware (hinges, latches, and so on), whose work is probably in this house.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1] When listed the property included two contributing buildings, the house and a barn, and one contributing site, a burying ground, on 50 acres (20 ha) of land.[2]
