The William Parker House is a historic house at 55 Walnut Street in Reading, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1796, was expanded early in the 19th century into a two family residence, and converted back into a single family in the early 20th century. It is notable for its association with William Parker, a dissenter from the doctrines espoused by the local Congregational Church. In 1849 he joined with other members of his extended family in splitting the congregation.[2]

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