  • The Simpson House is a historic house at 57 Hunnewell Avenue in Newton, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame house was built in the late 1890s, and is an excellent local example of a well-preserved Queen Anne Victorian with some Colonial Revival features. It has roughly rectangular massing, but is visually diverse, with a number of gables and projections. A single story porch across the front extends over the drive to form a porte cochere, and rests on fieldstone piers with Tuscan columns. The stairs to the entry are called out by a triangular pediment, above which is a Palladian window with flanking columns. Joseph Simpson, its first owner, was a principal in the Simpson Brothers paving company. The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
