Long Description:
Built in 1889 as the Port Chalmers Town Hall, this building performed that service until 1989 when Port Chalmers was merged into the Dunedin City Council. This was conducted as a government rationalising programme where some 700 plus municipalities became 74 entities overnight.

Today the Port Chalmers Town Hall continues to be in civic government service being the Port Chalmers branch of the Dunedin Library system.
