Borough Hall of the Borough of Waynesboro is a historic borough hall located at Waynesboro in Franklin County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1881 by the town council as a public theater and fire station, and named the Academy of Music. The first lecture at the theater was given by Robert Burdette, "The Rise and Fall of the Moustache", one of over 3,000 times he gave the lecture throughout the country. The theater hosted the first motion picture shown in Waynesboro in 1906.

The three-story, square brick building in the Second Empire style features a mansard roof with straight sides, a central pavilion extending approximately two-stories above the roofline, cast iron roof cresting, and eyebrow-like window heads.

Over the years it housed a number of functions including theater, public market, and library. It has housed solely borough offices since 1976.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.[1]
