The Pine Street Neighborhood Historic District encompasses a neighborhood of Cambridge, Maryland with more than 150 years of history as an African-American neighborhood. The district covers about 100 acres (40 ha) of Cambridge, centered on the triangular intersection of High, Washington, and Pine Streets. It is a predominantly residential area with some commercial development. The majority of the district's housing consists of somewhat uniform factory worker housing. There are rows of two-story, two-bay, gable-front frame houses, sometimes with four-bay duplexes.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2012.[1]
