Cambridge Copycat Houses

I know that there are “copycat houses” out there – replicas of well known houses – Mount Vernon has been recreated more than once and I’ve come across copies of Cambridge’s Longfellow House in magazines.


During a tour that was part of this summer’s Cambridge Discovery Days I learned that there’s a copy of a Cambridge house in Cambridge.


22 Fayerweather Street is a copy of Elmwood, once home to several historic figures including writer James Russell Lowell and now the Harvard President’s residence.

Elmwood was built in 1767.


22 Fayerweather was built in 1898 when the Colonial Revival  architectural style was popular. The house was designed by Boston architect Herbert D. Hale.  H.D. Hale was the grandson of Edward Everett Hale, the writer, reformer and Unitarian minister.


Have you come across any “copycat houses”?
