Raymond has had a few Town Halls over the years. Raymond’s first Town Hall was a pioneer-era building made of a simple wood frame.

The 1926 fire that destroyed several downtown businesses including the Merc, prompted the Town Council to consider the need for a more sturdy and fire resistant building. By 1930, it was time for Raymond to move into its new Town Hall. This building was one of several public buildings designed by F. Bent Rolfson, a prolific architect from Raymond. This building served as the Town Hall for 66 years, but it has also housed other important community functions including library, police, fire department and jail. It still serves our community but in none of the ways we’ve listed.
