Warrenton Receives Main Street Award
03/10/2022

North Carolina Main Street has recognized Warrenton with an award of merit for the renovation of Town Hall. 

 

Town Hall is a 1907-8 structure and one of the most architecturally significant commercial structures in Warrenton.  An excerpt from the original 1976 Historic District Application reads: “a red brick building, two stories high, has arched openings with contrasting trim; the first-level openings are segmental-arched, the second-level ones round-arched with keystones. The four-bay main (north) façade has a two-bay pavilion with a simple shallow pediment. At the second level, the bays are defined by corbeling into panels.  Insurance maps show the multi-use of the building, which had not only the city hall offices but also a fire department, opera house, and market.”

Vacant for six years with a flight of pigeons roosting inside, the structure had been abandoned for several years.  Working with Belk Architecture of Durham, NC, the internal structure of the building was redesigned to accommodate offices and meeting space for administration and public works departments and Board of Commissioners.
