Long Description:
With all the renovations, it has become difficult to recognize these buildings as being the same.

Brown's Hall was built on the corner of Pine Avenue and Spokane Street about 1897 and housed an undertaker's parlour, a store and lodge meeting rooms.

In 1920 the building was acquired for Municipal Offices by the city but by 1928 the building was in danger of collapse and had to be demolished. The new City Hall was built as an extension to the 1923 fire hall and has a cadmium cylinder containing civic records concealed in a cornerstone.

In 1961 the building's exterior was remodelled by architects Smith & McCulloch of Trail. The Trail city archives are located in this building. Though the fire hall has since moved, this remains Trail's City Hall.
