The Alpheus Mead House is an historic house at 2200 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA. Built in the mid-1860s, this 2.5 story Second Empire house is one of just a few such houses to survive along Massachusetts Avenue. The house has retained its elaborately decorated porch, and its projecting bracketed cornice.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
