The Harding-Winter Street Manufacturing District encompasses a surviving fragment of the 19th century industrial history of Worcester, Massachusetts. The district includes seven brick factory buildings which were built between 1870 and 1898. They are a remnant of a once-extensive manufacturing district that extended further along Franklin and Grafton Streets, but has become fragmented by urban redevelopment and the construction of nearby Interstate 290. The district is bounded on the south by Pond Street, on the west by Harding Street, on the east by Water Street, and on the north by the rear property lines of Winter Street properties.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
