City Council Chamber

Built in 1816, the third floor of Town Hall was used as a City Council Chamber and as a space for members of the community to host banquets and other dinners. A beautiful room with hardwood floors, large windows and views of Market Square, this room is still a wonderful place to host events. The Council Chamber provides a historic and intimate setting for your dinner party, reception, or meeting.

Historic Market Square

Dating to 1728, this cobblestone and brick square once housed the city’s primary marketplace. Today, it is one of a small number of outdoor venues in the historic district. It is our largest rental space and is a perfect location for outdoor weddings and large receptions. We have also had organizations host BBQs and concerts in the square. Historic Market Square provides a wonderful backdrop of architecture and has an inviting atmosphere for any event.

Market Square was such a lovely space for such a happy event. We appreciate all that was done to help organize our wedding — especially coordinating with a local restaurant to ensure their festival music was stopped during our wedding. As we look back on our special day we will always fondly remember how lovely it was to get married in Market Square. — Cristina and Rich

Thank you so much! Our meeting was extremely productive and we all loved the space. You were so great to work with and such an amazing help. We hope to work with you again in the future, as well! — Lifepoint Church
