Williamstown Town Hall, Ferguson Street

Williamstown Town Hall is a civic building located in Williamstown, a suburb of Melbourne, Australia.

The hall was built in the 1920s in the Greek revival style to the design of prominent local architect Joseph Plottel,[1] and opened officially in 1927.[2]

After the City of Williamstown was amalgamated with the City of Altona in 1994 to form the new City of Hobsons Bay,[3] the building continued to be used for council meetings, though not as often as its Altona counterpart.
