Prospect Heights Historic District is a historic district roughly bounded by Prospect Heights, Prospect, and Water Streets in Milford, Massachusetts. It encompasses a neighborhood that was created by the Draper Corporation of Hopedale, Massachusetts for its immigrant workers. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.

The community has a mix of different nationalities. Every year a new mayor is chosen to represent the community. There has been a mayor for every year starting in 1962, with a different background being represented each year: Portuguese, Irish, Italian, Greek, Armenian or Polish.

The Heights contains a World War II Memorial honoring local veterans who served in the war. The monument contains 184 names including one female, a nurse.

There is also the Portuguese Club, a soccer field, basketball courts, and a playground for children.

Every year the annual Portuguese Picnic is held drawing thousands every year. The new mayor also starts on the same day.

The motto of the heights is "No matter where you roam, Prospect Heights is still your home."
