Forester's Hall, also known as Forest Hall, is a historic commercial building located at Milford, Pike County, Pennsylvania. The original section was built in 1886, and expanded in 1904. It is a large three-story, eight-bay wide building constructed of bluestone. It features a steep pointed roof, small towers, gables, dormers, and three bluestone chimneys in a Châteauesque style.

The 1904 addition was built to house classrooms and auditoriums for the summer forestry Masters program operated by the Yale School of Forestry at nearby Grey Towers.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1] It is located within the Milford Historic District.
