The East Elm–North Macomb Street Historic District is a residential historic district located in the city of Monroe in Monroe County, Michigan. The district was listed as a Michigan Historic Site and added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 6, 1982.[1]

This district comprises approximately 0.75 square miles (1.9 km2), bordering the River Raisin on the south and North Monroe Street (M-125) on the west. The district extends to the north to East Lorain Street and to the east to North Macomb Street. Streets within the district also include Tremont, East Willow, East Vine, East Noble, Gee, Sackett, and Glendale.[2] Some of the houses in this district date back to 1820, and the district includes a wide array of Greek Revival, Federal, Second Empire, and Victorian architecture. The majority of the properties in this district are privately owned houses and range from large mansions to lower-class dwellings and apartments, while small businesses line the stretch along North Monroe Street.[3]

The Governor Robert McClelland House, which is also listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is located within this district at 47 East Elm Street. Robert McClelland lived in this house briefly when he served as mayor of Monroe in 1841 before leaving to embark in national politics.[4] The East Elm–North Macomb Street Historic District is also located across North Monroe Street from the St. Mary's Church Complex Historic District and adjacent to the George Armstrong Custer Equestrian Monument.
