The Haymarket Historic District was added to the National Register of Historic Places on May 27th, 1983. The district is located on Michigan Ave. between Portage St. and the Grand Rapids & Indiana Railroad. Originally covering 55 acres, the district contained 22 buildings.

In 1990, the Haymarket District underwent a boundary increase of less than an acre, adding four buildings to the district.

In addition to being listed as a national historic district, the Haymarket District also enjoys local historic district status. The boundaries of the local district are slightly larger than those of the national district, encompassing two additional buildings on the southeast corner of Water and Edwards Streets.
