Polish Home Hall is a historic building located at Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is a large two-story masonry vernacular Beaux-Arts style building bearing classical features and symmetry. It was constructed about 1905 as the city hall, fire station, and meeting hall for the small community of Curtis Bay within the southern limits of Baltimore City. In 1925 United Polish Societies purchased the building and named it Polish Home Hall and it became central to the Polish experience in Curtis Bay. It functioned as a social, educational, and political center for Curtis Bay's Polish community into the 1970s.[2]

Polish Home Hall was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2007.[1]
