The House at 90 Prospect Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts is one of three houses built as part of a family compound by Elizabeth Coit.

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 (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.[2]

The house was built in 1913 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
