The Saint Michaels Historic District encompasses the historic center of Saint Michaels, Maryland, U.S.A. The late 18th- and early 19th-century town is a small seaport on a tributary of the Chesapeake Bay which has retained a high degree of historic integrity. Of particular interest are an unusual number of gallery-fronted houses.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]

While writing Chesapeake, James Michener lived here, both researching for the book and experiencing life in the historic town.[3]
