Event description

Description

Fitzroy Town Hall was constructed in two stages in the 19th century. The hall wing and a tower were designed by WL Ellis and built in 1873 by Nation Company. The second stage, which was designed by G. Johnson and built by J. Moore in 1887-90, included extensions to the hall, new municipal offices, library, court house, and police station. The Fitzroy Town Hall is of historical significance as a symbol of the growth of Melbourne during the long boom prior to the 1890s. The building is representative of the aspirations and burgeoning wealth of Melbourne during the gold rush years and a manifestation of local government rivalry, which led to the construction of many grand town halls throughout the city's suburbs. After amalgamations in 1994, Fitzroy Town Hall was largely vacated, providing an opportunity for Council to restore and enhance the building with the help of a Community Reference Group. On 18 March 2007, the building was re-opened to the public. Today, the building is used as a function and meeting space and is currently tenanted by Fitzroy Legal Service, Australian Communities Foundation, and the Print Council of Australia.
