Plaque Text

Constructed in 1851-52 this building was for over a hundred years the centre of the municipal and social life of Woodstock. It housed the local government and also served at various times as lecture hall, opera house, and assize court. The design is a particularly fine example of colonial adaptation from British models of the period. Although its lines are basically eighteenth-century Palladian, exterior details such as round-headed windows with heavy surrounds reflect contemporary Italianate Revival influences.
