Gates Hall and Pultneyville Public Square is a historic theater and village green located at Pultneyville in Wayne County, New York. Gates Hall was built in 1826 by the Union Church Society as a place of worship for the community's Methodists, Presbyterians, and Episcopalians. In 1867, the building began to be used as a theater. It was remodeled in 1894 in the Queen Anne style to serve as a multipurpose civic building. It is a two story, gable roofed building resting on a raised basement. Pultneyville Public Square is a village green, approximately one acre in extent, that serves the passive recreational needs of the hamlet.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]
