Stonewall Town Hall’s image of strength and durability is created by its simple massing and striking facades of locally harvested stone. The town, with quarries that were once a major limestone production centre within Manitoba, now possesses a collection of notable limestone buildings along its Main Street. As part of this collection, the town hall is a landmark structure with minimal detailing and a basic cube form made interesting through the truncated southeast corner and exposed entrance. Designed by Provincial Architect V.W. Horwood and originally constructed as a provincial land titles office, the town hall was one of the essential governmental institutions established in rural Manitoba as settlement expanded in the decades surrounding the turn of the twentieth century.
