The Stanstead is a historic apartment building located at 19 Ware Street in Cambridge, Massachusetts. The three story Richardsonian Romanesque building was built in 1887, and is an uncommon brick rendition of a triple decker, more typically a wood frame construction, that was just becoming popular in Cambridge. The architects, J. P. and W. P. Richards, also designed The Jarvis, another early brick apartment house in the city.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
