Alexandria Town Hall restoration

Alexandria Town Hall restoration

Repair and heritage restoration works

Alexandria's much-loved Town Hall on Garden Street has been restored to return the 136-year-old building to its former glory.

The works on the heritage-listed building ensure it will continue to function as an accessible, safe and usable venue for the community and future generations.

The works included:

  • restoring the building's exterior and interior
  • waterproofing to protect the building's structure
  • painting of the exterior and interior surfaces
  • refurbishing the heritage timber windows and doors
  • repointing the heritage brickwork on the façade
  • restoring the main heritage hall's ceiling and anteroom
  • minor structural repairs and remediation to emergency exit stairs.

The 2-storey brick building was constructed between 1881 and 1928, and was built for the new municipality of Alexandria after the community's rapid growth in the 1860s. It was used as a public school in the 1880s and 1890s, and in 1919 served as a temporary hospital, soup kitchen and general haven during the great influenza epidemic that swept the world.

We started the works in May 2017, which were completed in November 2017.
