The Crowley House is a historic house located at 365 West Main Street in North Adams, Massachusetts. It is one a small number of houses in North Adams built in a transitional Federalist-Greek Revival style. Little is known of its early history; it first enters the documentary record in the 1860s when its owner defaulted on debts and lost the property. It was occupied from the 1880s into the early 20th century by David Crowley, a clothes finisher working in the local textile mills. It is unknown if Crowley owned the property. The house follows a fairly typical Greek Revival plan, with a central hall and wings on either side of the main block. The front facade has Greek Revival details, including Doric pilasters and Greek fret molding, but the workmanship of some of the details shows that it was probably done by someone with more practice in the Federalist style.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.
