The Osborn–Bennett Historic District is a residential historic district in Tiverton, Rhode Island.

The district was formed around Main Road which was laid out in 1683 by the first English settlers in the area. The Osborn family settled there in the 18th century and distinguished themselves as businessmen and attorneys. The Osborn family cemetery is within the district as well as several Italianate houses. The district extends along Main Road north of its junction with Rhode Island Route 24, and includes three houses on the west side of the road (1188, 1168, and 1148) and one on the east side (1137). The oldest house is the Thomas Osborn House (1168), built c. 1790.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2006.[1]
