The White-Preston House is a historic First Period house at 592 Maple Street in Danvers, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a side gable roof, twin interior chimneys, and clapboard siding. Its main entrance is sheltered by a gable-roofed portico. The oldest portion of the house, its front right, dates to about 1722, with the front rooms on the left added soon afterward. In the 19th century the rear of the house was either rebuilt or enlarged to be a full two stories in height, and the house was given a modest Greek Revival stylistic treatment.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
