George Albert Castor (August 6, 1855 – February 19, 1906) was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives for Pennsylvania.

George A. Castor was born in the Holmesburg section of the city of Philadelphia. He entered a cloth house early in life and subsequently became a merchant tailor with large establishments in New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia. He retired from active business pursuits in 1875. He was an unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination of Congressman at Large in 1892. He was a member of the Republican city committee for fifteen years.

Castor was elected as a Republican to the 58th Congress to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Henry Burk. He was reelected to the 59th Congress and served from February 16, 1904, until his death in Philadelphia.
