Ku Klux Hall was a meeting hall and 700-seat auditorium which opened in 1926 in Bessemer. It was frequently used for boxing matches promoted by Arthur Eakin.

Although the specific location and fate of the building is unclear, it may be the same as the American Legion Boxing Arena which operated in 1932 at 1714 4th Avenue North.
