Maggie Bracken (born Margaret Wooster) was a prostitute and madam who ran a brothel a few doors down from that of her younger sister, Louise Wooster, in the 1880s.

The 1884 city directory locates her house on the south side of 3rd Avenue North, three houses west of 20th Street North. Among her "boarders" at the house were Cornelia Crowe, Lulu Woods, Jennie Clair, Mattie Carter, and Lizzie McDaniel. Sylva Huff was listed as a servant of the house.

On June 3, 1884 Bracken pleaded guilty in the Jefferson County Circuit Court to violating the revenue laws and was fined $50.
