|Tools for this tag|
Use this for a village, town or city townhall, which is a building that may serve as an administrative center, or may be merely a community meeting place.
A townhall is not necessarily used (or having ever been used) for administrative function. The tag is also used for a "village hall", commonly in UK villages, and used for community events such as fundraising and Discos.
The same tag can be used for a "City hall", a building where the principal offices of a city administration are located. Another term is "Municipal hall", where the main offices of a municipal administration are Located.
How to Map
Other countries may have other townhall types to distinguish the main hall of the municipality, or one of its annexes with more limited services (e.g. in suburbs of large cities, or in remote settlements separated by rural areas, or in urbanized exclaves), or with more specialized services.
