A townhall building is a building errected as a townhall. This refers only to the building and does not imply that it currently functions as townhall. You can use the tag also for former townhalls (e.g. when a new townhall was built or the administrative authority transferred to a different municipality). For the townhall function, make sure to add amenity=townhall. The tag may also be used for a townhall building referring to only a part of a city, rather than the whole city (if locally considered a townhall).

How to map

Add building=townhall to an existing building or create a new one.
