The Pioneer Hall is the oldest structure inside the Linfield College campus in McMinnville, Oregon. It was completed in 1883, and features an Italianate architecture that initially housed the whole school.

Before the Pioneer Hall was built, the Linfield College was still known as the McMinnville University. One professor started drafting plans for a building as early as 1879, but the administration waited until 1882 to start construction. It was then finished a year after and continuously served the institution until today, after more than a century.

The Pioneer Hall at Linfield College still functions partly as a dormitory and partly as an academic building, as some rooms are still used as classrooms today. it was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1978.
