National Register of Historic Places in Napa County
The Goodman House is one of Napa's most successfully executed examples of late 19th century residential architecture. It embodies the aesthetic ideals of the Queen Anne style and shows the type of house that attracted prosperous Napans at the end of the Victorian era. It also indicates the growing importance of family rather than personal wealth.
When compared with the hundreds of other residences from the period in Napa, the Goodman House emerges as one of the ten or twelve most significant.
