The Charles Williams House is a historic house at 108 Cross Street in Somerville, Massachusetts. The 2-1/2 story wood frame Italianate house was built c. 1848 for Charles Williams, a hat dealer. The central projecting section has a Palladian window on the second floor, above a recessed entranceway where the door is surrounded by sidelight and transom windows. It is one of a small number of surviving Italianate homes in the city, and is one the oldest of that style.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
