Robert Bernard Hall (January 28, 1812 – April 15, 1868) was a member of the United States House of Representatives from Massachusetts. He was born in Boston on January 28, 1812. He entered the Boston Latin School, studied theology at Yale Divinity School in New Haven, Connecticut where he graduated in 1835, and was ordained to the ministry, first as a Congregationalist and then as an Episcopalian. Hall was one of the twelve original members of Garrison’s Anti-Slavery Society.

He was elected as the candidate of the American Party to the Thirty-fourth Congress and reelected as a Republican to the Thirty-fifth Congress (March 4, 1855 – March 3, 1859).
