The former Hindmarsh Town Hall was erected to commemorate the centenary of South Australia from 1836 to 1936. 

South Australia was proclaimed a British Colony on the 28th of December 1836. Captain John Hindmarsh R.N. arrived on the H.M.S. Buffalo as its first Governor.  

The hall is now called the Education Development Centre.

The turning of the first sod in connection with the building of the new town hall at Hindmarsh was performed by the Mayor (Mr McInness) yesterday. The new town hall, which will seat 2,000 persons, will be completed at the end of the year, and will be Hindmarsh's Centenary project. The new building and extenssive alterations and renovations of the old will cost about £20,000.
