The Daniel Carr House is a historic house on Brier Hill Road in Haverhill, New Hampshire. The main block of the 2.5 story wood frame house was built c. 1825-30, probably by John Carr, and was attached to an earlier 1.5 story structure built by Daniel Carr c. 1796, which was rebuilt in the 1980s. The house is most significant for the high quality folk murals drawn on its walls, most likely by the itinerant artist Rufus Porter between 1825 and 1830.
