Titusville City Hall is a historic city hall located at Titusville, Crawford County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1865 as a private dwelling and later operated as a hotel known as the Bush House. It is a 2 1/2-story, frame building in the Greek Revival style. The front facade features a portico with four Ionic order columns supporting a pediment and entabulature. Two wings were added between 1865 and 1872, at which time it became the city hall.[2]
