The Starr Historic District is a neighborhood of historic buildings in Richmond, Indiana. Included in the district is a former Hicksite Quaker Meeting House, now the Wayne County Historical Museum and the Reid Memorial Presbyterian Church.

Two houses in the District were the former residences of Orville and Wilbur Wright, during their childhood. A long-gone garage at the back of one of these houses was the location of their first bicycle repair 'shop'. This info was reprinted from a Richmond Palladium-Item article.
