The Elliot Smith House was a historic house at 839 Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story asymmetrical wood frame Queen Anne style house was built in 1889 for Elliot Smith, a local businessman who operated a wholesale grocery. Its porch featured elaborately turned posts and balusters, and the house was clad in wood shingles, including bands of decoratively cut shingles. There was an oriel stained glass window on the south wall. Smith lived in the house until his death in 1913. In 1945 the house was acquired by a veterans' organization, and eventually became VFW post.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1] It was demolished in 1982.[2]
