Corozal Town Hall
Corozal Town Historical Walk
In 1953 Corozal artist Manuel Villamor created his iconic mural which depicts the historical development of Corozal. The mural has changed over the years, in 1986 he redesigned it and in 2003 Mr. Villamor restored the mural. In 2012 at the age of 84 he completed his final restoration. Currently the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH) oversees the preservation and promotion of this national treasure.
In 1958 as a result of the anti colonial movement and the constitutional reform, the magistrate as chief administrator changed to the Mayor and a town clerk. The Town Hall then provided space for a Mayor's and clerk's office and a large space as an assembly room for Town Board's regular meetings and civic functions. (Marker Number 5 of 7.)
