The East Main Street/Douglass Heights Historic District is significant both for its association with the residential development of Union from ca. 1823 to ca. 1940 and as a reflection of the diverse architectural styles and influences in residences of that period. It is also significant for its association with many of the leading public and business leaders of Union in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The district is a collection of 84 primarily residential properties in the eastern area of Union, including portions of East Main Street, Douglass Heights, and Perrin Avenue. The district contains 13 properties of key significance and 42 other properties contributing to the character of the district. Representative architectural styles include Neo-Classical, Queen Anne, Colonial Revival, and Dutch Colonial Revival. Listed in the National Register July 17, 1989.
