The Wendell Bancroft House is a historic house at 20 Washington Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in the late 1860s, and is one of the few Gothic Revival houses in the town. The hip roof has cross-gable dormers with steeply pitched roofs and decorative bargeboard trim, and the south facade has Gothic lancet windows. The house was built by Wendell Bancroft, founder or director of several local banks.[2]

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