Plaque Text

Perth's stately town hall is an enduring expression of the vitality and importance of local governments in the 19th century. Erected in 1863-1864, shortly after the town's incorporation, it recalls an era when such buildings served as more than the headquarters for municipal administration. In addition to offices and a council chamber, this town hall originally housed a market, band room, fire hall, police station, post office, as well as a large public hall. The building's elegant, classically inspired design and prominent location testify to its central role in community life.
