The Armsby Block is an historic commercial building at 144-148 Main Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. The five story brick building was designed by Stephen Earle and built in 1885, with storefronts on the ground floor, and a boarding house above. It features modest Victorian Gothic styling, including corbelling at the roof line and a decorative gable at the center of the main facade.[2] It currently contains offices for the Worcester County Sheriff and a restaurant at street level. It is adjacent to the historic Elwood Adams Store.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
