The Panguitch Historic District comprises the center of Panguitch, Utah. The district encompasses the historical portion of the town, comprising 642 structures, of which 379 are considered contributing structures to the historic district. Most of the buildings in the district are residences built between 1890 and 1930, with a proportion of commercial buildings at the center of town. Most buildings are built in red brick, many using a distinctive deep red brick with soft edges that was produced near Panguitch between 1915 and 1940. Many houses are of a distinctive local style with a square plan and a pyramidal roof, incorporating projecting bays. The district also includes 1950s and 1960s ranch houses and motel courts. The town is laid out in a grid, conforming to usual practices in Utah's Mormon communities.[2]

Notable buildings listed separately on the National Register of Historic Places include the Panguitch Carnegie Library, the Panguitch Social Hall and the William T., Jr., and Mary Isabell R. Owens House.

The Panguitch Historic District was placed on the National Register of Historic Places on November 16, 2006.[1]
