Old Town Hall

Today, the Old Town Hall houses town offices and the Southeast Museum. The museum occupies the lower level, which was originally designed as a space with dual functions: a courtroom as well as a dancing room.

he first town hall, destroyed by fire, was built in 1867, next to where Bob's Diner is today. In 1896, the existing Old Town Hall was designed by the New York City firm of Child and De Goll, Architects.

It was the fourth town hall, the three previous buildings having succumbed to fires in 1880, 1882, and 1893. For over 75 years, the Old Town Hall served as the seat of Town Government, until 1965 when town offices moved to the First National Bank of Brewster building in the center of Main Street.

Inside, decorative pressed metal sheets adorn the ceilings and walls of the museum's exhibit hall.

Traveling shows and movies played in the auditorium, which also was the scene for early high school graduations
