The Bradford Old City Hall is a historic city hall located in Bradford, Pennsylvania, in McKean County. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on May 17, 1976.[1]

The eclectic Victorian Romanesque Revival building was constructed in 1897. The 68-by-90-foot (21 by 27 m) brick building features a four story, 100 feet (30 m) clock tower that houses a four-dialed clock created by Seth Thomas around 1910.[2]

The building no longer functions as city hall, but remains home to some city government offices. The building is also located in a Keystone Opportunity Zone (KOZ).[3]
