The Peterborough Town Hall is a heritage-listed town hall at 110 Main Street, Peterborough, South Australia. It was built in 1927, and was added to the South Australian Heritage Register on 21 October 1993.
C. Smith, an architect who designed a number of South Australian public buildings, had completed a design for the new hall by June 1926: located adjacent to the old hall, it was to have five office fronts, a subscribers' room, a public reading room, a town clerk's office, a council chamber, and a hall seating 1,100 to 1,200 people, at an expected cost of £11,705. The foundation stone for the new hall was laid on 23 March 1927.
