The Howland Mill Village Historic District is a historic district roughly bounded by Bolton, Winsper, Hemlock Sts., and Rockdale Avenue in New Bedford, Massachusetts. It consists of a collection of single-family mill worker housing units constructed in 1888-89 for workers at the nearby Howland Mill. The districts uniformity of style is apparent despite some exterior alterations: there are only two basic house plans.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1996.[1]
