Dorsey Hall is a historic home in Columbia, Maryland. It is a well-preserved and detailed example of the vernacular dwellings of the early 19th century and associated with the Dorsey family, one of the "first families" of the county.
he 479-acre property adjacent to the north branch of the Patuxent River was surveyed by Richard Beard in December 1684, and granted to Dorsey in March 1696. The farm operated with slave labor until the death of Caleb Dorsey in 1864.

It is a six-by-one-bay, 2+1⁄2-story stucco structure with a gable roof covered with asphalt shingles.

Dorsey Hall now stands at the entrance to a business park. It has no signage or other identification and is not open to the public.
