The Fore River Club House is a historic club house at Follett and Beechwood Streets in Quincy, Massachusetts. It is a long 1-1/2 story wood frame structure, with rectilinear eyebrow dormers on the water-facing roof. The Shingle-style clubhouse was built in 1917 by the Fore River Shipyard as a recreation center for its employees. It originally housed a ballroom, bowling lanes, and billiard room. It was acquired by the city in 1925, and is now a community center.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1]
