St. James's Episcopal Church is an historic Episcopal church at 1991 Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The parish was founded in 1864 as a mission from Christ Church. The Richardsonian Romanesque building was built in 1888-89 to a design by Henry W. Congdon. The church was built on the site of the Davenport Tavern, a landmark that had stood on that site since c. 1757 (a portion of which was relocated to Somerville, where it still stands).[2]

The church building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
