Charleroi Historic District is a historic district in Charleroi, Washington County, Pennsylvania.[2]

It consists of almost 1700 buildings, built mainly from 1890-1920. Many of the buildings are wooden frame two-story front gabled residences, but others include brick stores, churches, union halls, and clubs. The district is located on a plain along the Monongahela River and the adjoining hills.[2]

The First Christian Church, built in 1901 and demolished in the 1980s, once part of the Charleroi Historic District.
