The Josiah Coolidge House is an historic house at 24 Coolidge Hill Road in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Located on a drumlin overlooking the Charles River, this architecturally eclectic house was built in the 1820s, and was the farmhouse of the last working farm in the city. The farmlands were developed around the turn of the 20th century, and the house underwent significant alterations around 1900.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
