Greece Memorial Hall, also known as Greece Town Hall, is a historic town hall building located at Greece in Monroe County, New York. It consists of a two-story, side-gabled main building constructed in 1919; two 1 12-story flanking wings built in 1936, and a two-part addition constructed in 1955. The main building features a 1 12-story protruding portico with a stone arch flanked by two open oculi and supported by two stone Tuscan columns.

The hall memorializes the 288 young men from Greece who served in World War I, thirteen of whom died in battle.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998.[1]
