The Printing House Row District is a U.S. historic district on the 500 through 800 blocks of South Dearborn, South Federal and South Plymouth streets in the Loop community area of Chicago, Illinois. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as South Dearborn Street – Printing House Row Historic District and listed as a National Historic Landmark as South Dearborn Street – Printing House Row North Historic District on January 07, 1976.[2][1] The district was designated a Chicago Landmark on May 9, 1996.[3] The district includes the Monadnock Building, the Manhattan Building, the Fisher Building, and the Old Colony Building.[2] The district overlaps significantly with the Printers Row neighborhood.
