Goodall House, also known as George D. Collins House, at 618 Orange Street in Macon, Georgia, is a house built in 1859 with Italianate exterior and ornate interior. As of 1971 it had been very little altered.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.[1] It was deemed significant as a "splendid example of substantial homes built 'on the Hill' as Macon's residential section moved to the higher elevation" from the city's business center. While the house was the first built on its block, by 1971 it was compressed between other houses. One of its few changes since construction was loss of a projecting bay window because an adjacent building was so close.[2]

The nearby Judge Clifford Anderson House, built in the same era, was also outstanding and well-preserved, as of 1971.[2]

In 2017, the Goodall House seems no longer to exist.[3]
