The Benjamin Hoyt House is an historic house at 134 Otis Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1868, and is one of the only bracketed Italianate houses to survive in East Cambridge. It has a front-facing gable whose cornice includes dentil moulding and brackets, and whose fully pedimented gable end has a round-arch window in the tympanum area. The main roof cornice also has dentil moulding and paired brackets, and the front windows have slightly projecting lintel caps.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
