The Globe Village Fire House is a historic former fire house on West Street at Main Street in Southbridge, Massachusetts. It is the first of two fire stations built in the 1890s; the other, the Elm Street Fire House, is still in use as a fire station. It is a relatively modest Colonial Revival brick structure, although it shares some Greek Revival features with other nearby brick structures. Its corner tower originally had a mansard-style roof.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989.[1] At the time of its listing it had been repurposed for use by a veterans group.[2]
