The Ilium Building is located at the northeast corner of Fulton and Fourth (northbound US 4) in Troy, New York, United States. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places on August 13, 1970,[2] and since 1986 has also been a contributing property to the Central Troy Historic District.

It is a five-story, seven-by-four-bay structure of buff-colored brick with decorative stone and terra cotta trim with a flat roof and stone cornice. It was designed by local architect Marcus F. Cummings and built in 1904 by the Ilium Realty Company. Today it remains one of the landmarks of downtown Troy.[citation needed]
