  • The surrounding area was originally known as the hamlet of Vellore

  • The 'Vaughan Memorial Hall' was originally known as the 'Vellore Township Hall.' It was renamed in 'Memorial Hall' in 1919 to honour the local soldiers who had died in the first World War.

  • The Hall is currently used for special events, corporate workshops, exhibitions, and sales. 

Construction Materials:

  • Both the basement and main floor of the Township Hall have four windows on each side covered by arched radiating voussoirs.

  • A small window on the north facade looks into what was originally the area where they had kept a vault, which kept important Township documents.
