Dalhousie Town Council Approves Plans to Repair the Exterior Stucco of its Historic Town Hall

 

 

Dalhousie Town Council will spend $18,000 to repair the exterior stucco of its historic town hall.

 

The authorization to do the repairs was approved without discussion at Monday night’s regular council meeting as there are cracks in the stucco on the building which will be filled.

 

The Tribune reports that Clerk-Treasurer Gilles Legacy told the council that the town should look into a more permanent solution, and seek a grant for the restoration of the building’s exterior based on its heritage status.

 

Built in 1939, the town hall has been registered as a historic place since 2000 and is considered a rare New Brunswick example of Art Deco architecture.
