Limehouse Town Hall’s foundation stone was laid in 1879 and the building opened in 1881. The building consists of a number of offices and a grand assembly hall. Originally a Vestry Hall it was taken over by the newly formed Stepney Borough Council in 1900 and since then has been known as a Town Hall.
