The Joseph Hicks House is a historic house at 494 Main Rd in Tiverton, Rhode Island. The house is a two-story wood frame structure, which was originally built with brick side walls, and became known locally as "the Brick House". These walls were covered over by clapboarding as part of a series of alterations in 1893, which did not otherwise significant obscure the building's modest Federal characteristics. The main facade is five bays wide, with a hip roof that has eaves deeper than normally found on Federal houses. The Hicks family, which owned it for many years, was one of the first to settle in the Tiverton area.

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.
