The William Hogg House is an historic house at 54 Elm Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The house was first built in 1853 as the Rice House and was significantly altered (technically qualifying as a renovation rather than as a new structure) according to plans by Fuller & Delano. Its front facade has a Corinthian porch sheltering a center entry flanked by bay windows. William Hogg, for whom the house was built, was owner of the Compton Carpet Company.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1] It now serves as dormitory housing for Becker College.

A photo of the house appears on page 490 of the 1899 book The Worcester of eighteen hundred and ninety-eight. Fifty years a city. A graphic presentation of its institutions, industries and leaders.
