The Orange Street Historic District is a 125-acre (51 ha) historic district in the East Rock section of New Haven, Connecticut that was listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places in 1985. At that time, it included 546 buildings deemed to contribute to the historic character of the area.

The district is an irregularly shaped area that includes the southern half of Orange Street. The northern half of Orange Street is included in the Whitney Avenue Historic District, which abuts the Orange Street Historic District on the west.[2]

The Congregation Mishkan Israel's former building, at 55 Audubon Street, is one contributing building.
