Description of Historic Place
The Old Municipal Office in the Hamlet of Hoey is a Municipal Heritage Property within the Rural Municipality of St. Louis No. 431. The corner lot property features a modest 1917, one-storey, wood-frame structure.
The Old Municipal Office at Hoey is of heritage value as the administrative and government office for the Rural Municipality of St. Louis No. 431 from 1917 to 1987. It is also significant as the first permanent office to serve the municipality which was established in 1910. The office held all records of the municipality and was the place of municipal Council meetings.
The heritage value of the Old Municipal Office at Hoey also extends to its architecture, which is significant as one of the oldest structures in Hoey.
