Masury Estate Ballroom is a historic ballroom located at Center Moriches in Suffolk County, New York. It was built about 1898 and was originally part of the Masury family estate. It is a long, rambling one story, Shingle Style wood frame building. It has a "T shaped plan which contains the ballroom in the main upper portion and a bowling alley and billiards room in the long base. The building sits on a brick foundation and features a broad hip roof with hip roof dormers. The estate house was dismantled following the New England Hurricane of 1938, but the ballroom remained in use and is now owned by the Holiday Beach Property Owners Association.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.[1]
