The substantial West St. Paul Municipal Hall, a Classical Revival-style building with generous proportions, is a good illustration of the multi-use public facilities erected in small rural centres in the early 1900s. The stately structure combined a number of services in its offices and council chambers and also provided space as a community centre and legion hall. Its design by well-known Winnipeg architect Charles S. Bridgman incorporates elements such as a detailed entrance portico, cornice, parapet and flat and arched openings to create a noble, inviting repository for civic pride.
