The Benjamin Adams House is a historic house located at 85 North Main Street, in Uxbridge, Massachusetts. This 2.5 story timber frame house was most likely built sometime before 1792; it exhibits high quality Federal styling, including a central door flanked by sidelight windows and topped by a fanlight window. The entry is sheltered by a portico supported by paired columns. Benjamin Adams, probably its first owner, was an early 19th century United States Congressman, lawyer, and banker.[2]

On October 7, 1983, the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[1]
