The R.H. Farwell House is an historic double house at 2222–2224 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The wood frame house was built in 1891, at a time when what is now Massachusetts Avenue (then North Avenue) was lined with prestigious and fashionable houses. The house has matching center entries flanked by a pair of two story polygonal bays, which once had brackets in the eaves (since removed).[2]

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