Located next to the Indian River, Clinton‘s Town Hall was built in between 1936 and 1938. It is named in honor of William Stanton Andrews, a native of Clinton, who donated the building. In addition to town offices, the William Stanton Andrews Memorial Town Hall contains a theater and the Clinton Historical Society Museum Room.
In 1837, Col Augustus Hazard bought into the powder-manufacturing enterprise in the section of Enfield that would become known as Hazardville. Hazard donated land (at the corner of Hazard Avenue and North Maple Street) for the construction of the Hazardville Institute, an Italianate-style building that was used as a meeting space by the community. It fell into disrepair in the 1970s and was saved from demolition by a group of preservationists in 1979. The building has recently been restored by the Hazardville Institute Conservancy Society.
In 1935, a fire destroyed the Congregational Church and neighboring Town Hall (built in 1896 and remodeled in 1916) in Middlebury. They were rebuilt the following year, both to designs by the architect Elbert G. Richmond (1886-1965)
At 291 Main Street in Middletown is a former U.S. Post Office, a limestone Renaissance Revival structure built in 1916. Planning for a new post office had commenced in 1911, but there was controversy over where to built it. Its location, at the southwest corner of Court and Main Streets, had been owned by the Federal Government since 1841. The Post Office ceased operations in 1977 and is now used by Liberty Bank.
A two-story building with Gothic Revival windows and a Doric columned entry porch (on the right in the image above) was built in 1908 on Market Street in Collinsville to serve as the Town Hall of Canton. The town hall later expanded into a much larger nineteenth-century building next door on Main Street (the large building in the image above). It was originally a commercial structure that had stores at street level and offices above.
The building which today serves as the Town Hall of Wallingford, was built in 1916 as the Lyman Hall High School. The school was named for Lyman Hall, a native of Wallingford who signed the Declaration of Independence. It later was the Robert Early Junior High School, before becoming the Town Hall in 1988. It was designed by John T. Simpson.
