Shaw Historic District, also known as Francis B. Shaw Block Historic District, is a national historic district located in Doylestown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The district includes seven contributing buildings in a residential and industrial area of Doylestown. The block was developed between 1833 and 1914, and includes the Bryan House (c. 1833), Clemens Double House (pre-1874), Goodman House (c. 1835), Kulp House (c. 1849), the Late Victorian-style Rhodes House (1891), Rhodes Livery Stable (1914), and the Doylestown Agricultural Works complex (1867, 1914). The Doylestown Agricultural Works was rebuilt after a fire in 1913; it closed in 1968.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1] In 1985, it was incorporated into the Doylestown Historic District.
