The Castlemaine Town Hall is built on the former site of the Castlemaine Municipal Chambers in Lyttleton St. which was destroyed by fire in 1862. The Castlemaine Town Hall was constructed in 1898 with extensions to the west wing in 1984 where a town hall entrance foyer was built and an east wing extension built in 1990 to accommodate Council offices. The hall itself still maintains its original internal beauty where over the past 100 years, weddings, dances, numerous concerts and hundreds of functions have taken place on its 332 square meter floor space. Overlooking this large dance area is the decorative cast iron railed balcony for those who wish to sit back, relax and enjoy a concert.
