Our Town Hall, now serving as District Court House, was built in 1910, and the centenary was celebrated this weekend with Open House for the public, including guided tours, lectures and dramatised court proceedings.

A group of people waiting for a guided tour inside.
The inside of the building is beautifully decorated.
Waiting hall surrounded by court rooms.
Above each door there is a different decoration.
The city arms - a pair of sheep shears.
This mural painting combines the tower of a church which is the oldest building in town, with the two towers of the town hall.
A brief account of the history of the town is given in a number of texts painted on the walls. This one tells the story of the foundation of the town (1622).
