Description

The Fremantle Town Hall is an impressive two storey stuccoed building built in 1887 to accommodate the administrative and civic functions of the Fremantle Municipal Council.

The Fremantle Municipal Council, formed in 1871 from the Fremantle Town Trust, initially met in a variety of different locations in Fremantle. After becoming a municipality, the Council set as a prime objective the procurement of a permanent town hall. In 1876, a site on the corner of South Terrace and Essex Street was selected and set aside for the town hall.

The city is named after Captain Charles Howe Fremantle, the English naval officer who had pronounced possession of Western Australia and who established a camp at the site. The city contains these well-preserved 19th-century buildings and other heritage features.
