Northford Center Historic District, also known as Northford Center, is a historic district that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. It is located along Middletown Avenue (Route 17) and includes parts of Old Post Road in North Branford, Connecticut. It encompasses a rural village center that began as an agrarian center and was transformed in the 19th century into a small industrial center, whose major early industry was the manufacture of pins, screws, and other fasteners. The district is architecturally diverse, with buildings dating from the 18th century to the early 20th, most built before the American Civil War.
