The Downtown Chelsea Residential Historic District is a historic district roughly bounded by Shurtleff, Marginal, and Division Streets and Bellingham Square in Chelsea, Massachusetts.

This district incorporates the Shurtleff School (now the Early Learning Center) and period structures around the school. The area had been completely devastated in the 1908 fire and had previously contained City Hall and a number of other community buildings.

The 1909 construction of the school, which takes up an entire city block, spurred residential development in the area.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
