Madam Tia was speaking at the TEDxSingapore City2.0 event last Saturday on “Sketching the City Together”.
The Town Hall is a Grade 1 Muzium Negara gazetted building under the Antiquities Act and the oldest municipal building on Penang Island. The foundation stone was laid by Colonel Anson and the building was officially declared open by the Governor of the Straits Settlements, Sir Frederick Weld, in 1880.
The municipal offices were in the Town Hall until 1903 when they moved to the newly built City Hall nearby. The Town Hall contained an assembly hall, ballroom and library and was the premier social venue for the town’s elite in the early years. The old Hokkien name for it was “Ang Mo Kong Kuan “or European Club.
