The Henry Goulding House, now the Swedish Lutheran Home for the Aged, is an historic house at 26 Harvard Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The opulent Italianate mansion was built in 1850 for Henry Goulding (on the site of his earlier Greek Revival house, which was moved to 4 Dix Place). Goulding was a principal partner in some of Worcester's largest industrial businesses. The house was occupied by Goulding until his death in 1866, and then by his son. In 1921 the Goulding heirs gave the property to the Swedish Lutheran church, who converted the house to a home for the aged.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
