Old Town Hall in need of repair

Dear Sir,

I write to draw attention to the poor condition of an historic building on Front Sreet; namely the Old Town Hall (1794), which houses the Registrar of the Supreme Court.

The plaque on the wall states that the building was a former Custom House and the meeting place of the House of Assembly between 1815 and 1822, and that it also served as our City Hall when Hamilton became a city. I'm sure I have also heard it referred to as the old fire station.

There are two double cedar doors that are badly in need of attention and the walls have lines showing where cracks have been repaired, but the paint that usually comes after does not seem to have happened yet. Many of the windows also seem to be in poor condition.

These are challenging times and there are many buildings in need of attention, but I am hoping that this one on Front Street will soon get some repairs.

We all want our island to look its best for next year and the America's Cup events.

VAL SHERWOOD
