Pawtucket City Hall is located at 137 Roosevelt Avenue, just outside the central business district of Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The Art Deco-style building was designed by Providence architect John O'Malley and was built in 1933. It has a large rectangular main block, fifteen bays wide, whose central, three-bay portion projects slightly. Above this section, rises a tower 209 feet (64 m) in height. The main block, which houses the Pawtucket City Hall offices, is three stories high, and it is flanked on either side by squat projecting wings that are three stories high. The left wing houses the central fire station, while the right wing houses the police department headquarters.[2]

The building was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983,[1] and it was briefly featured in the movie Outside Providence.
