The House at 190 Main Street, also known as the William F. Young House, is a historic house at 190 Main Street in Wakefield, Massachusetts. The exact construction date of the 2.5 story wood frame house is uncertain: it follows a traditional three bay side hall plan, but was also extensively remodeled sometime before 1870 with Italianate styling, probably by William F. Young, a commuter who worked at a grocery firm in Boston. It has a round-arch window in the front gable end, and its porch features narrow chamfered posts topped by a flat arched frieze. The main entry portico is closed in, and it and the porch feature decorative brackets.
