The Trebechovice Town hall existed on the current site as early as 1832, but in 1882 this poorly constructed building was demolished and a new, contemporary building with a striking corner clock tower was built. One of the most significant Town hall repairs took place in 1929, when the building received a new facade designed by architect Jan Rejchl, and in 1988 the town hall was extended by the neighboring house N° 15. The town hall was completely renovated in 2007.
