The Dr. Charles Jordan House is a historic house at 9 Jordan Avenue in Wakefield, Massachusetts. Built c. 1885, it is one Wakefield's most elaborate Queen Anne Victorian houses. The 2.5 story wood frame house is unusual for having a hipped roof; it also has a tower in the northwest corner, and a porch with Italianate pillars brackets. The house was built by Dr. Charles Jordan, a local physician and pharmacist with extensive land holdings in the area.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
