The Town Hall is a Grade II listed building in the conservation area of the Market Place.
It was built to commemorate Queen Victoria’s Diamond Jubilee and dominates the Market Place.
The original Trustees and Guarantors of the Hall were local prominent citizens of the time.
The Town Hall, built in the Palladian style, must have been a marvellous sight when first completed; further confirming the importance of Kirton in Lindsey at that time.
The Kirton in Lindsey Society also has a range of publications about the history of the area which can be purchased through their website: www.kirtoninlinsociety.org.uk
