Easthampton’s Old Town Hall to Get Facelift

(Easthampton, MA)  –  Easthampton’s old Town Hall will get a face lift thanks to a $133,000 state tourism grant.  The money will renovate the building’s lobby, putting in wood floors, new bathrooms and front doors in keeping with the building’s architecture. The 1869 building serves as the home for a number of arts organizations and is managed by the non-profit known as “CitySpace.”  The state grant comes from a program designed to promote community development and tourism in Central and Western Mass.
