The Gilman Block was a historic block at 207-219 Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts.

It was built in 1896 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2000.[1]

The building was acquired by the state and demolished in 2004 to provide space for the new court building. The court building incorporated a part of the facade of the former Gilman block and has an exposition of the history of the historical building.[2]
