The Highland Historic District is a U.S. historic district in Middletown, Connecticut. The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.

The district is an irregular shape that includes, or fronts onto, portions of Atkins Street, Country Club Road, Sawmill Road, and Bell Road. It includes 15 houses, of which 9 are contributing buildings, and it includes a barn that is also a contributing structure. Four of the houses date from the mid- to late 18th century and were the homes of some of the earliest settlers in this part of Middletown. These are typical Georgian style houses, wood frame structure with large central chimneys. Most of the remaining houses are either Federal or Greek Revival in their styling.

The Highland neighborhood is representative of the now rare rural character of Middletown.
