Branford Point Historic District is a historic district in Branford, Connecticut. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1] It includes much of the Branford Point neighborhood.

Branford Point is generally considered to be the area along the west side of the Branford Harbor to the Amtrak railroad tracks. It is bounded on the west by the Short Beach neighborhood, on the north by Branford Center, and on the east by the Branford River. Harbor Street, Maple Avenue, and Stannard Avenue are the main thoroughfares of the neighborhood. In the 2000 Census, Branford Point was included by the U.S. Census Bureau in the Branford Center census-designated place.

At the time of NRHP listing in 1988, there were 207 buildings in the district, of which 158 were buildings that were deemed to contribute to the historic character of the district.[2]
