The House at 38 Salem Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts is a late Federal period house. The 2.5 story wood frame house is believed to have been built c. 1810, and has locally unusual features, including brick side walls and a hipped roof. Its twin slender chimneys are indicative of late Federal styling. The front entry is topped by an entablatured with a compressed frieze, and is flanked by three-quarter sidelight windows.[2]

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