The Downtown Adrian Commercial Historic District is a historic district comprising the downtown area of Adrian, Michigan. It was designated as a Michigan Historic Site and added to the National Register of Historic Places on April 17, 1986.[1]

While the district traces its origins to the foundation of Adrian in 1826, the oldest buildings within the district today date back to 1865; the majority were built between 1865–1920.[2] The district is roughly bounded on the north by Toledo Street, on the east by North Broad Street, on the south by East Church Street, and on the west by North Winter Street (M-52), West Maumee Street, and the River Raisin.[2] Most of the district is enclosed by the US-223 Business Route, although the two are not conterminous.

The buildings within the district are a mix of Federal, Greek Revival, and Late Victorian architecture. The Downtown Adrian Commercial Historic District also includes other listings on the National Register of Historic Places, including Adrian Engine House No. 1, Adrian Public Library, Adrian Union Hall-Croswell Opera House, and Clark Memorial Hall.
