The Bradley-Wheeler House, also known as the Charles B. Wheeler House, is an historic house in Westport, Connecticut. The house is the headquarters of the Westport Historical Society and is operated as a Victorian-era historic house museum. On display are a furnished parlor room, dining room, bedroom and kitchen. The Society also displays changing exhibits of local art, photography and history in the Betty & Ralph Sheffer Gallery and the Little Gallery, which are part of the house.
