Kimball City Hall is the seat of local government for Kimball, Minnesota, United States. It was built in 1908 when the community was still a village known as Kimball Prairie.[2] When it first opened the hall housed offices for local government, professionals, and the telephone utility, as well as a public library and a municipal theater.[3] The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1982 as Kimball Prairie Village Hall for its local significance in the theme of politics/government.[4] It was nominated for embodying the importance the community placed on local government and public services in the early 20th century.[3]

It was designed by architect Louis Lockwood.
