The Elisha Williams House (also known as the Hawthorne House) is located on Aitken Avenue in the east corner of the city of Hudson, New York, United States. It is a brick Federal style building, different from other Hudson houses in that style, built around 1810. Some Victorian decorations were added later. Williams, its original builder, was a lawyer and politician who was known nationwide as a gifted orator. The house was originally his estate, accounting for its unusual positioning within its neighborhood. In 1999 the house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
