The House at 26 Francis Avenue in Wakefield, Massachusetts is a Colonial Revival octagon house. The shingle-clad wood frame house rests on a high fieldstone foundation, is 2 stories at its rear and 1-1/2 in front, and has the appearance of a square house with four square sections projecting diagonally from each of its corners. The house has a Craftsman/Bungalow-style hip-roofed dormer with diamond-paned windows, and its main entrance is oriented diagonally toward the corner, under a porch supported by round columns.[2]

The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
