The R. H. Stearns Building is an 11 story residence building (with shops at ground level) at 140 Tremont Street in Boston. It was built in 1909 for the businessman R. H. Stearns and his company and was the home of the R. H. Stearn and Company department store until its demise in 1978.
The Stearns store had been in many locations in Boston before finally settling in its new building and headquarters at 140 Tremont Street.
R. H. Stearns and Company ceased operations on 1978, and the building was converted to 140 studio and one bedroom apartments for older adults and people with disabilities. The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places as R. H. Stearns House in 1980.
