In the spring of 1840, measures were taken to construct a suitable building. A parcel of land was donated at the corner now known as Division and Pearl streets. The present building was occupied in October 1848 and was consecrated on September 9, 1849. It is the oldest public building still standing in the city. Its features include walls made with stone quarried from the Grand River and the original, hand carved woodwork that is found throughout the interior.
