Flushing Town Hall is a historic Town Hall located in the Flushing section of the New York City borough of Queens. It was built in 1862 and is a 2-story, three-by-six-bay, brick building with basement and attic. A small rear wing was added in 1938 containing a block of jail cells. The front facade features a triple arched portico topped by a classic entabulature with low balustrade.[2] The building houses the Flushing Council on Culture and the Arts (FCCA).

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.[1]
