Town Hall niche

Posted by, infotexadmin on June 27, 2012

The niche on the front of Orford Town Hall has been unfilled since the building was built in 1902. It may, as suggested by one of our many local architects, have been designed to lighten the large expanse of the ornate gable end with no purpose other than that, a little Edwardian architectural whimsey. But should the community consider using the niche to locate a memorial to something or someone of merit from the area? A number of suggestions have been made but what do you think?
