Henry Olin (May 7, 1768 – August 18, 1837) was an American lawyer and politician. He served as a United States Representative from Vermont and seventh Lieutenant Governor of Vermont.

Olin served in the Vermont House of Representatives from 1799 to 1804, 1806 to 1815, 1817 to 1819 and 1822 to 1824. He was a delegate to the State constitutional conventions in 1814, 1822, and 1828.[2] He was associate judge and then chief judge of the Addison County Court from 1801 to 1824.[3] He served as a member of the executive council in 1820 and 1821.[4]

Olin was elected to the Eighteenth Congress as a Democratic-Republican candidate to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Charles Rich. He served in Congress from December 13, 1824 to March 3, 1825.[5] He was elected as the Lieutenant Governor of Vermont, and served from 1827 to 1830.[6]
