Temple Place Historic District is a national historic district at 11-55, 26-58 Temple Place in Boston, Massachusetts. The district encompasses a set of fifteen well-preserved 19th and early-20th century buildings representing the increasing commercialization of the area, which was a fashionable upper-class address in the late 18th century. The earliest buildings date from the 1830s and are Greek Revival in style. Three buildings (29-43 Temple Place) were designed by noted Boston architect Nathaniel J. Bradlee, and are rare surviving examples of his work which predate the Great Boston Fire of 1872; one building (25-27 Temple) was designed by Peabody and Stearns.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1] Among the former tenants: Ritz & Hastings, photographers (1860s-1880s).[3]
