The Elisha Knight (formerly erroneously Wright) Homestead is a historic house at 170 Franklin Street in Stoneham, Massachusetts. Built c. 1750, it is the only property of that period in Stoneham that retains a rural setting. The two story wood frame house has relatively modest decorations; its decorated entry hood dates to a c. 1870 renovation that probably also removed a central chimney, replacing it with one at the east end.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984 as the "Elisha Wright Homestead";[1] a name correction to "Elisha Knight Homestead" was recorded by the state in 2011.[2]
