The Capt. William Green House (also the Green House) is a historic First Period colonial house at 391 Vernon Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

The house is a 2.5 story gambrel-roofed timber frame structure, whose main block was built c. 1750. Attached to the rear of the house is an ell whose construction has been dated to c. 1680. The newer portion of the house was built by Captain William Green in what is now Lynnfield, and was moved to its present location by his son Caleb.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of two separate listings. In 1989 it was listed under the name "Capt. William Green House", and in 1990 it was listed under the name "Green House".[1][2]
