Douglas Historic Business District and Church Square

Founded in 1901 as a site for a copper smelter, Douglas boasts 405 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Some of the most famous buildings include the historic Gadsden Hotel, the EP & SW Railroad Depot, which is now the police station, the business district, the 1919 Grand Theater, Church Square and Castro Park and the surrounding residential areas.

Church Square earned fame in the 1930 Ripley's Believe It or Not as the only city block in the world with a church on each corner. Adjacent to Church Square, the Douglas-Williams House is home to the Douglas Historical Society and hosts an in-depth genealogical library.
