Morges Town Hall is certainly the oldest and most impressive local authority building in the Lake Geneva Region (Canton of Vaud).
The origins of this mansion which houses the administration of Morges probably date back to the foundation of the town itself. The municipality of Morges acquired the two private buildings in 1510. They were combined as the Town Hall, and they have been home to the political life of Morges since 1518. Originally, the building also contained an inn and some shops which later made way for the "corn market". Some years later, the commune felt that its accommodation was too cramped, so it bought the neighbouring house and rebuilt it in 1620, when it became an integral part of the Town Hall.
Apart from the very modern renovation work that was undertaken recently, Morges Town Hall is unique because of its impressive polygonal tower, an unusual structure in an urban setting. It is definitely the oldest local authority building in the canton and it stands out as a major example of Gothic architecture.
