Oliver Wendell Holmes House is a National Historic Landmark at 868 Hale Street in Beverly, Massachusetts.

The house was built in 1909 by Asa Obear Marshall for Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr.. The building was added to the National Historic Register in 1972.[1][2]

This house is frequently confused with the Oliver Wendell Holmes House at 1124 Massachusetts Ave. This house was constructed for Holmes in 1882 when he began teaching at Harvard Law School, and was his place of residence until his Supreme Court appointment in 1902. This building is now the clubhouse for Sigma Chi at Harvard College.
