The Captain Goodwin/James Eustis House is a historic house at 1 Elm Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts.

It was built circa 1760 by Captain James Goodwin and subsequently added onto by James Eustis and other families since. The town records were destroyed in the late eighteenth century and thus the oldest map to show the house is 1790.[citation needed] The house features Greek Revival styling throughout, likely the work of Eustis, who moved to the area in 1827, and operated a shop out of the left-side ell.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990, where it is listed as the "Captain Goodwin-James Custis House".[1]
