The G.A.R. Hall, formerly the Bull Mansion, is an historic Grand Army of the Republic Hall at 55 Pearl Street in Worcester, Massachusetts. It is an ornate Victorian Gothic/Stick style two-story granite structure, designed by noted New York City architect Calvert Vaux and built in 1876 for George and Sarah Bull.[2] It has applied Stick style woodwork in a number of its gables.[3] The building was sold to the GAR in 1912,[2] with an addition made to it that was designed by Worcester architect Stephen C. Earle.[3] It was eventually turned over to the city as a memorial to all of its war veterans, and has since changed hands and uses several times.[2]

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.[1]
