The Leopold Hall was designed in 1893 by architects Tombs and Durran after a fire destroyed the original c1883 Free library building. It is a large gable corrugated iron roof, timber frame, weatherboard structure with original windows and roof ventilators. Some changes were made in 1957 and the late 1980s. It has been used as a picture theatre and for dances, weddings and special community occasions.
The Leopold Hall has historic and social value to the Leopold community.
The Leopold Hall is relatively intact and has been in continuous use since 1893 as a library, meeting place and community venue for cultural, educational, religious, political, sporting, patriotic and private functions. It is of LOCAL cultural significance.
