The Rea Putnam Fowler House is a historic house at 4 Elerton Lane in Danvers, Massachusetts. It is a 2-1/2 story timber frame structure, five bays wide with a side gable roof, clapboard siding, and a slender central chimney. A leanto section extends to the rear, giving the house a classic saltbox profile. The leanto section extends beyond one of the sides, creating what is called a "Beverly jog". The front entrance is centered, and is sheltered by a late 18th or early 19th-century porch. The oldest portion of the house, its western three bays and leanto, was built about 1700, and the eastern bays were added about 1725. The original chimney was quite large; the present chimney is a 19th century replacement, and a second chimney in the leanto is a 20th century addition. The house underwent a historically sensitive restoration in the 1930s, under the auspices of the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities.
