The O. W. Gardner House is a historic house at 5 Myrtle Street in Winchester, Massachusetts. The 1.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1840 by Oliver W. Gardner, and was originally one of a pair built in the area (the other is no longer extant). It is one of Winchester's finest examples of Gothic Revival architecture, with elaborate scroll-sawn vergeboard in its steep gables, which also occurs in miniature on the gable-roofed portico that shelters the door. It has windows topped by label mouldings, and some windows are topped by a Gothic pointed-arch. The corner boards have elaborately grooved pilasters.
The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
