[1]Shepard & Stearns was an architecture partnership that operated in Boston and greater New England.

Its principal partners were George F. Shepard and Frederic B. Stearns (1874-1959). They worked together starting in 1913 although the firm was not formally established until 1921. One of their first works together was the Suburban Club.[2]

A number of its works survive and are listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places.[3]
