Samuel Hannaford (10 April 1835 - 7 January 1911) was an American architect based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Some of the best known landmarks in the city, such as Music Hall and City Hall, were of his design. The bulk of Hannaford's work was done locally, over 300 buildings, but his residential designs appear through New England to the Midwest and the South.

Samuel Hannaford and Sons Thematic Resources
A 1978 study titled the "Samuel Hannaford and Sons Thematic Resources in Hamilton County" was conducted which identified numerous Hannaford buildings for potential listing in the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. This led to numerous actual listings of Hamilton County properties designed by the Hannafords.
