The Benjamin Holt House is a private home in Stockton, California. Built in 1869, it was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.


The home was built for Benjamin Holt, a business man whose family-held companies would eventually merge to form the Caterpillar Tractor Company, by his father-in-law, Benjamin Brown.

The house is a two-story, Colonial Revival, wood-frame structure, that has had numerous additions since it was first built. A garage was added in 1904 to house the family's new car. The living area is 5,542 square feet (514.9 m2) on a half-acre lot.

Part of the property has served as Boy Scout Headquarters — Forty Niner Council, including in 1980.
