The Luman Andrews House is a historic house at 469 Andrews Street in Southington, Connecticut. The house was built in 1745 by Nathaniel Messenger as a 2 12-story four-bay wood-frame structure, and had a 5th bay added in 1795. Greek Revival trim, including the pilasters and entablature framing its doorway, was added in the early 19th century. A quarry on the site was the source of volcanic rock used in Portland cement during the 1830s and 1840s.

The 1.8-acre (0.73 ha) property was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989. It is one of 25 early houses in Southington that were covered in a Multiple Property Submission study.
