Town Hall

-A A +A
early twentieth century

The Town Hall, a T-shaped building with a large hipped roof and a gabled projection in front, and ornamented with fluted columns, was built by members of the Metlakatla Athletic Club, a basketball team that needed a gymnasium. The gym occupies the portion under the hip roof, while the front of the building was devoted to town offices.
