The Ancient Order of Hibernians Hall, also known as Hibernian Hall, was a historic building in Anaconda, Montana, built during 1896-1899 at cost of $30,000. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979.[1]

It was a two-story 50 feet (15 m) by 80 feet (24 m) building that includes elements of Queen Anne architecture and Romanesque architecture. Its first floor included five store spaces, two that are 25 feet (7.6 m) wide on Commercial Avenue and three on Cedar Street. The lodge room on the second floor was accessed by an entrance on Cedar Street. It cost $30,000 to build and was opened with a grand ball on February 9, 1899. The Anaconda Standard proclaimed it to have the "'finest and largest dance hall in the state'" and for it to be "'one of the handsomest buildings in the City of Anaconda'" with its new floor asserted to be a "'marvel of beauty and artistic workmanship'".[2]
