Designed in the Victorian era, this building also has Greek revival and Italianate details. Completed in 1853 at three times the original estimated cost, then reconstructed in 1894 after a devastating fire, it was the hub of social and political activity in Port Hope throughout the 19th century. It still functions as Port Hope’s municipal office today.
