Rufus Lamson House is an historic house at 72-74 Hampshire Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts, a few blocks from the Lamson Place.
The house was apparently built and owned by Rufus Lamson (October 2, 1809 - July 13, 1879) and then inherited by his widow Mary Jane Lamson (Butler) (1812 - Unknown) whom he married at Boston, on Thanksgiving Eve, 1832. Rufus Lamson was a stone mason and a large holder of real estate, known for his liberal treatment of the landlord and tenant relation. He was a member of the Universalist Church in Cambridge and served as an assessor for the city for twenty-two years.
Rufus Lamson and his son, Rufus William Lamson (1833 - 1912) ran a firm Rufus Lamson & Son that built many of the substantial brick structures now standing in Cambridgeport.
