Milton Center Historic District is a 180 acres (73 ha) historic district in the town of Litchfield, Connecticut, that was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1986.[1]

It includes representation of Greek Revival architecture.[1]

In 1986, it included 20 buildings deemed contributing to the historic character of the district, one additional contributing structure, and one contributing site.
