The Dr. Leonard Hall House was a private resident located at 334 West Main Street (M-34) in Hudson in westernmost Lenawee County, Michigan. It was designated as a Michigan Historic Site on April 4, 1978 and later added to the National Register of Historic Places on October 2, 1978.[1][2]

The present day location of the Hall House, which has since been demolished.

The house was a 1½ story, Gothic Revival structure constructed in 1847. The house was constructed by wealthy physician Dr. Leonard Hall, who was one of the earliest pioneers in Hudson. He established his medical practice in Hudson, and his house was one of the city's first residences. He passed the house on to his son, Henry Hall, who served as Hudson's mayor.[2] The Hall family maintained ownership for quite some time until the house was sold to the city, where it was torn down in recent years to make room for commercial development.

A strip mall now occupies the vicinity, and an unrelated war memorial rests on the property of the former Dr. Leonard Hall House. The house was located on the edge of the Hudson Downtown Historic District. Though demolished, it is still officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is the only historic listings in Lenawee County to have been demolished.
