DALTON TOWN HALL
DALTON HISTORICAL SOCIETY Dalton, New Hampshire
For about thirty-five years after the town was incorporated, Dalton's
voters conducted their Town Meetings in the homes, inns and taverns
of various residents, until 1844, when they voted to "take the surplus
money and build a Town-House". The appearance of the building has
changed only a little since then. Most notable is the addition of the
Public Library, and the removal of the carriage sheds at the left side
of the building. The Town Hall was also the location of Dalton High
School for many years.
The building still serves as a meeting place for several organizations
in town, and is host to numerous events throughout the year. It
serves as a focal point in the community.
In July 2009, a non-profit group, Friends of the Dalton Town Hall,
leased the Town Hall from the Town of Dalton in order to keep it open
for year-round use for the benefit of the public.
