  • Photos show the house located at 1 Elm Street on the west side of the street at the corner of Prospect Street near the railroad tracks. Part of the house was built before 1770, and there is a later Greek Revival style addition at the north end, built around 1830. The house is of wood frame construction and has a clapboard exterior. The house is known as the Captain Goodwin House after the original builder, but it is also associated with James Eustis, who owned the house in the 19th century, along with a substantial farm in this part of town. Nearby Eustis Avenue is named after him.
