The New Glarus Town Hall is a two story rectangular clapboard structure with a small belfrey, peaked window moldings, and pilasters marking its corners. The town hall retains its integrity and is a good example of a county governmental building.

The town of New Glarus was organized in 1850 and this hall, erected in c. 1886, continues to be used for all town business.
