The Luther Brooks House is an historic house at 34 Kirkland Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The 2.5 story wood frame house was built in 1840 by Oliver Hastings. It retained a traditional entry centered on the long side of the house, while it was oriented with its gable to the street in the Greek Revival style. A two story ell at the rear of the house is probably original, and the house was further extended with a single story addition on its east side.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
