The Bigelow Street Historic District encompasses a uniform collection of 19th century houses on most of the length of Bigelow Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just northwest of Central Square. Bigelow Street was laid out by Albert Vinal in 1868, and the street was almost completely built out by 1874. Despite being built by different builders, there is uniformity of style, with most of the houses being in the then-fashionable Second Empire style.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.[1]
