Historic districts usually have group value, particularly where buildings taken as a whole make up an important architectural and historical unit. The Jamaica National Heritage Trust has to date designated five historic districts, namely, Spanish Town, Falmouth, Titchfield Peninsula, Black River and Port Royal and the Palisadoes.
- Black River - All those parts and parcels of land situated along both sides of High Street
- Falmouth - Commencing at a point on the Western boundary of Upper Harbour Street
- Port Royal - All that area of land and structures thereon known as part of Harbour Head Pen, the Palisadoes
- Spanish Town - Spanish Town, built by the Spanish after Sevilla Nueva (New Seville) was abandoned
- Titchfield Peninsula - All those parcels of land and structures situated in the area known as the Titchfield
