Elmwood

Local nameElmwood
LocationCambridge, Massachusetts, USA

Elmwood, also known as the Oliver-Gerry-Lowell House, is a historic house and centerpiece of a National Historic Landmark District in Cambridge, Massachusetts. It is known for several prominent former residents, including: Thomas Oliver, royal Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts; Elbridge Gerry, signer of the US Declaration of Independence, Vice President of the United States and eponym of the term "gerrymandering"; and James Russell Lowell, noted American writer, poet, and foreign diplomat.

The house, originally on a 100-acre estate, was built in the Georgian style about 1767 by Thomas Oliver, scion of a wealthy merchant family in the Province of Massachusetts Bay. Abandoned by the Loyalist Oliver at the outset of the American Revolutionary War, the property was confiscated by the state of Massachusetts.
