The Ware Center Historic District encompasses the historic civic center of Ware, Massachusetts. It stretches along Massachusetts Route 9 on either side of that road's junction with Greenwich Plains Road. Most of the structures in the district were built between 1760 and 1860, although there are some 20th century intrusions. The village retained much of its early Georgian and Federal character in part because the economic focus in the town moved with the advent of industrialization elsewhere in the town during the 19th century. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.
