Paw Paw Building, also known as Odd Fellows Hall, is a historic building located at Port Deposit, Cecil County, Maryland. It is a two story, 36-by-40-foot (11 by 12 m), stone structure covered with plaster, that was built in 1821 by the First Methodist Episcopal congregation. It was used as a church until 1839. It was then used as a school called Heath of Health Academy and later Odd Fellows Academy. It later held a grocery store and "dining salon" until converted for use as an apartment and recreation hall.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.[1]
