The Smith Carriage Company District encompasses three buildings on Park Street, Springfield, Massachusetts, between Main and Willow Streets. The buildings, located at 12, 14-38, and 11-31 Park Street, are noted for their historic association with the locally important Smith Carriage Company, which operated in the area for many years. The oldest of the three, 12 Park, is a brick building dating from the 19th century, while the other two are concrete and steel designs from the 1920s. The company, founded in 1827, built carriages in the Park Street area until the 1920s, when it shifted to the production of automobile parts. It finally closed its doors in the 1940s.[2]

The district was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
