The Huntington Center Historic District is a historic district in the city of Shelton, Connecticut. The district encompasses the original colonial settlement of Shelton, which was first known as Huntington. It is a linear district about 0.75 miles (1.21 km) in length, centered on the Huntington Green and Cemetery, and extending north along Church Street and south along Huntington Street. The district is predominantly residential, although it has two churches. The green was laid out in 1717, and many of the district's historic buildings were built over the next 150 years.[2]

Significant properties in the district include:[2]

  • Huntington Green, 1717
  • Josiah Wheeler House
  • DeForest-Rudd House, c. 1770, Colonial
  • Huntington Congregational Church, c. 1890, Gothic Revival
  • St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 1812, Federal
