History of Town Hall 
The Napanee Town Hall, located at 124 John St. Market Square, was erected in 1856 and, today, is an enduring symbol of the development of local government in the 19th century. Town Hall is an early example of a combination town hall and market, an arrangement popular in Ontario before 1870. The noted Kingston architect Edward Horsey was responsible for the building's simple, yet civic image. With its dual function and its prominent location, this structure has remained a centre of community life. Several of Sir John A. Macdonald's documented speeches have been made here, including his campaign speech, presented by Macdonald from the balcony of Town Hall on January 13, 1882, as well as his last Town Hall speech on February 2, 1891.
