Job and Deborah Otis House, also known as East Otis Farm, is a historic home located at Sherwood in Cayuga County, New York. It is a Federal-style dwelling built in 1796. It consists of a 2-story, three-bay, side-hall main block with a ​1 12-story side ell. Also on the property is a mid- to late-19th-century carriage house, now converted into a two car garage. During the 1840s the dwelling was home to Job and Deborah Otis, who were Orthodox Quakers and leaders of the Otisites.[2] Their granddaughter was the painter Amy Otis.[3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.[1]
