The High, Church and Gould Streets Historic District is a historic district at 56-60-122 High Street, 29-117 Church Street, and 9-17 Gould Street in North Attleborough, Massachusetts. This area was developed in the mid to late 19th century as a residential area serving businessmen and professionals, predominantly those associated with North Attleborough's dominant jewelry industry. Its first main phase of growth was between about 1832 and 1855, and it experienced its most significant growth after the American Civil War and the arrival of the railroad.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.[1]
