Mount Kisco Municipal Complex is a national historic district located at Mount Kisco, Westchester County, New York. The district contains two contributing buildings; the Mount Kisco Town and Village Hall (1932) and the United States Post Office (1936). Both are in the Colonial Revival style. The Town and Village Hall is a 2-story, cruciform plan brick building on a limestone foundation and topped by a slate-covered hipped and gable roof. It features an octagonal clock tower. The Village Library formerly occupied the second floor until a separate, adjacent building was constructed in the 1960s. The first floor formerly housed the police station and a small jail. The Post Office is a 1 12-story brick building set on a limestone foundation and topped by a slate shingle clad gable roof. It consists of a central section flanked by 1-story wings, with a large 2-story rear wing. The interior features murals depicting the history of Mount Kisco executed by artist Thomas Donnelly in 1936.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1997.[1]
