The Tenino Downtown Historic District is two blocks long, one-half block-deep on either side of Sussex Street in Tenino, Washington. Approximately three acres in size, the district was added to the National Register of Historic Places on June 25, 2004. Sussex Street is the main thoroughfare through Tenino and is also part of Washington State Route 507.

(Left to right in this image) the State Bank of Tenino on the far corner is nestled into the L-shaped Campbell & Campbell Building. Except for its façade, the Mentzner & Coping Block was gutted by fire in 1983; only the leftmost of the two storefronts has been rebuilt. The Miller Block (three storefronts, the one at left with a distinct capital). The VFW Hall/Liberty Theater.
