The Asa Ellis House is an historic house on 158 Auburn Street, Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. It is a two story wood frame structure, five bays wide, with a shallow-pitch hip roof. It was built in 1805, and is a rare surviving Federal-style building from the first construction boom in the Cambridgeport area. This development phase resulted from the 1793 construction of the first West Boston Bridge; most of the construction was relatively modest vernacular housing such as this one.[2]

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