Moffat Town Hall is a Grade 2 listed, building built in 1827 as the Baths Hall for Moffat Spa. There have been some changes to the building, but little in the way of major refurbishment. The Hall was sold to Moffat Burgh Council under the estate of the Hope-Johnstone family [local landowners] in 1966. The Hall is now owned by Dumfries and Galloway Council and run by Moffat Town Hall Redevelopment Trust on a 21 year lease. The Town Hall is in a prominent position in the centre of the High Street, and is a natural ‘centre point ‘ for the Town.
The signing of the 21 year lease took place on 31st October 2012, and it came into effect on 12th November. The re opening ceremony son time later was very much “the icing on the cake” following five and a half years of work by the Community to raise funds and to develop plans to secure the future of the building. With funding support from Historic Scotland and Dumfries & Galloway Council, building work on restoration of the exterior of the Hall was completed in 2013.
