The West Goshen Historic District is a historic district in the village of West Goshen in the town of Goshen, Connecticut. It encompasses twenty historically significant properties in the village, most of which lie on Connecticut Route 4 between Bean Street and Thompson Road. Most of this area's buildings are residential and were built in the early decades of the 19th century, although there are some buildings that are older and some that date to the 1880s. Non-residential buildings include the former West Goshen Store (330 Rt. 4) and a former carding mill at 331 Rt. 4, built in 1818. The district also includes archaeological remnants of other industrial structures.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
