The Pelham Town Hall Historic District encompasses the remaining municipal portion of the center of Pelham, Massachusetts as laid out between 1738 and 1743. It includes the Old Town Hall, built in 1743, which is claimed by the town to be the oldest continuously used town hall in the United States.The land which became Pelham was acquired by the Lisburn Proprietors, Scottish emigrants, in 1738. The next year, a lot of 10acre was laid out for a meeting house, town pound, training field, and cemetery. The meeting house (now the town hall) was built on this parcel in 1743. A portion of the land was sold off in 1801, and the Pelham Hill Church, now the historical society museum, was built in the early 1840s.The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
