House at 90 Prospect Street is a historic house at 90 Prospect Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

Elizabeth Boit, co-founder of the Harvard Knitting Mills, also built on the west side, creating an estate compound on the summit of Cowdry's Hill that included three residences, formal gardens, a playhouse, and greenhouse. All three residences, 88 and 90 Prospect Street, and 127 Chestnut Street (D93, D92, D25, 1910-1913), were designed in the English Cottage Style by Wakefield architect Harland Perkins. The stucco structures have red tile roofs, recessed entries, exposed purlins, and irregular fenestration.

It was built in 1913 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.
