Easthampton’s Old Town Hall to receive renovations

Hampshire County

Renovations are coming to the Old Town Hall in Easthampton.

Renovations are expected for both the second floor and the facade of the Old Town Hall on Main Street.

CitySpace maintains the building and plans to renovate the second floor.

The building hasn’t been used for municipal purposes since 2003, when city offices moved to the current municipal building at 50 Payson Avenue, but the community still uses parts of the building for events.

As for the facade, the City Council has appropriated nearly $23,000 from the Community Preservation Act Committee to hire an architect to do a study on what repairs are needed.

“It’s a great use of a historic town building,” said Ben Lesko of Easthampton. “It’s been vacant and more or less unused for the better half of two decades now, and a great addition to the arts and culture of Easthampton.”

Over the years, the building has gone through a lot of wear and tear due to many years of weathering.

The city hopes to have construction started by the spring.
