The House at 118 Greenwood Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts is a rare well-preserved example of a Stick-style house. The ​2 12-story house was built c. 1875, and features Stick-style bracing elements in its roof gables, hooded windows, with bracketing along those hoods and along the porch eave. Sawtooth edging to sections of board-and-batten siding give interest to the base of the gables, and on a projecting window bay. The house was built in an area that was farmland until the arrival of the railroad in the mid-19th century.[2]

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