The Zimmerman House is a house located at 223 Heather Street, in a residential area of the north end of Manchester, New Hampshire. It is a usonian house designed in 1950 by Frank Lloyd Wright for Dr. Isadore and Lucille Zimmerman. It is a single-story structure, organized around a large L-shaped central chimney, and covered by a deeply overhanging roof. The rooms are arranged in a single line (except one).[2] Wright redesigned the house around a rock just outside the front entrance.[2] Most of its Wright-designed interior features are intact, including concrete floors, cypress woodwork finishes, and fabrics.[3] Wright designed a special music stand for four musicians.[2] Tours through the building are operated by the Currier Museum of Art.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]
