The Woodford Street Historic District includes a cohesive collection of five triple decker houses at 35-39 and 38-40 Woodford Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. All five were built c. 1926, and are predominantly Colonial Revival in style, although with some Craftsman features. Instead of having a more typical polygonal bay on one side of an asymmetrical facade, these houses have panels of four windows that do not project. They all have clapboard siding on the first level, shingle siding on the upper level and a fully pedimented gable end, with a wide cornice that has regularly spaced brackets. Porches are three-level, although each level generally has different styling. The early residents of the buildings were predominantly middle-class Jews moving from Worcester's Grafton Hill area.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
