Together with the historic church, the former town hall of Hagestein cannot be missed between the simple houses. The brick building and the striking turret with its wind vane were designed in the expressionist style by architect C.J. van der Meulen and are reminiscent of the Amsterdam School. Above the entrance with its original double door, you can still read the words ‘Town Hall’. Inside, the building has an irregular floor plan. The former warden’s home is located on the left-hand (west) side. The right-hand side is originally the town hall section, with the council chamber in the section at the rear.

Hagestein became an independent municipality on 1 January 1818, having been part of Everdingen for a number of years. It remained independent until 1986. On 1 January 1986, the municipality was dissolved and incorporated into Vianen. The town hall of Hagestein was designed in 1930. On 29 August 1930, the mayor laid the foundation stone and the town hall opened on 23 December 1930. The town hall continued to serve as a town hall until the merger with the municipality of Vianen in 1986. The building was then split into two separate houses.
