Construction of this building began in 1904 reflecting the growth of importance and prosperity in Walkerville and was a mix between a Renaissance and Classical Revival style building.
The character defining elements that express the heritage value include the English bond masonry with flat-arched voussoirs, and the solid and symmetrical configuration in red brick, with concrete quoins and belt courses, on a stone foundation.

HSR were able to thoughtfully restore the town hall and meet heritage requirements, which included patching stonework, demolishing certain sections and installing heritage-style doors and timber jarrah flooring. The restoration that was delivered successfully integrated new use into old spaces. The project also included new stone replacement, repointing, specialised cleaning to masonry, seismic stabilisation to parapets and salt damp remediation work.
