Old Town Hall

Old Town Hall

This Federal-style structure housed the city's meeting chambers, offices and jail and served as the headquarters and gathering place of civic organizations and included a subscription library. The death of George Washington was observed there in 1799, as were receptions and dinners for the Marquis de Lafayette and President Andrew Jackson. Henry Clay's body was laid in state there in 1851. The restored Old Town Hall provides space for exhibitions, programs and special events throughout the year.
