This town hall building is in the old town of Newburgh, IN. It is in a shared building with the town's library. The back of the building overlooks the Ohio River.
The town hall is not an old building, having just moved to their new location in 2006. As such, there is not much of a history for the Town Hall building, but the town itself has lots of history!
Newburgh is the sister-city of Newburgh, Lancashire, England. This area of Indiana also has been settled since around the year 1100 when a Native American group made home here. The Mississippian Indians lived in what is now known as Angel Mounds just outside of Newburgh. Newburgh was also a site of a battle in the Civil War when the town became the first city captured north of the Mason Dixon Line by the Confederates. There is also a site of a former Lock and Dam on the edge of town, with a new dam being built about a mile outside of town.
In modern day, Newburgh is somewhat thought of as two separate towns. There is the old town, which is near the Ohio River. And there is a business district that is a few miles away. Most of the towns, restaurants, businesses, schools, and churches are in the new part of town, with many homes and a few businesses in the old town.
