Oak Hill Cottage, built in 1847 by John Robinson, superintendent of the Sandusky, Mansfield, and Newark Railroad, is an historic Gothic Revival brick house with Carpenter Gothic ornamentation located at 310 Springmill Street in Mansfield, Ohio, in the United States.

It was acquired by Dr. Johannes Jones in 1864 and was the home of his family for over a century. Oak Hill Cottage was the setting of The Green Bay Tree, Mansfield native Louis Bromfield's first novel.[2]

On June 11, 1969, it was added to the National Register of Historical Places. It is now the Oak Hill Cottage and Museum.
