Constable Hall is a historic home located at Constableville in Lewis County, New York. It was built between 1810 and 1819 and is a two-story, rectangular Federal style limestone building with two 1-story wings. A U-shaped courtyard is created by the west side of the house and the two-story frame servants quarters to the south and carriage house to the north. The front features a two-story pedimented portico with paired attenuated free-standing Doric order columns on each side of the doorway.
It is rumored that the famous poem A Visit from St. Nicolas by Clement Clarke Moore was written in this building.
