In Wild World and City Folk
The Town Hall replaces the Wishing Well, Dump and Post Office in Animal Crossing for the GameCube. Therefore, it is where players can deliver letters, recycle items, and is where Tortimer will stand outside during events in the plaza outside.
The inside of the building has a counter that divides it into two parts, the Civic Center and the Post Office. Anywhere behind the counter is inaccessible to the player, and contains bookcases, mail sacks and the Mayor's desk, where Tortimer can be found sleeping. Pelly works from 7am to 10pm and Phyllis works from 10pm to 7am in the Town Hall.
- Environment- The player can hear the opinions of the townsfolk in regard to the environment of the town.

The Recycling Bin
Occasionally, items such as furniture, tools and clothing can be found in the recycling bin. These items may have previously been placed in the houses of villagers, who have obtained a new item in its place.
Automatic Bell Dispenser
The Automatic Bell Dispenser allows players to deposit or withdraw Bells, and to pay their mortgage. The bell dispenser was absent in Wild World and was replaced by Pelly during the day, and Phyllis during the night.
The Bulletin BoardThe Bulletin Board is a message board outside of the hall, where messages can appear any day. The player can also post their own messages, and is where Tom Nook sends the player to post how "cool" his store is as a job at the start of the game. In games before Wild World, it is located outside the Post Office.
In City Folk, two changes are made to the Bulletin Board. A small yellow bird is perched on top of the board whenever there is a new notice, and a player can delete messages if they feel the need to do so. This bird can be seen on the cover of City Folk.
In New LeafThe Town Hall is now used by the player who is the mayor of the town. Inside, Isabelle can be found behind the counter and will help the player fulfill their duties as mayor. It has undergone dramatic changes in New Leaf. This is in part due to the returning buildings which take on some of the responsibilities of the Town Hall. The Post Office has taken on the postal duties and banking, while Nook's Homes now control the mortgage payments. Both of which can be found in Main Street.
There are four different possible color schemes the town hall can have by default; First, a mostly brown exterior with a regular brown interior. Second, a yellow exterior with a green door, and a light brown interior. Third, a dark brown exterior with dark blue doors and windows, and a dark brown interior. Lastly, a brown exterior with green windows. The interior of this town hall is rather interesting, as, while the floors and walls are still brown, the desks are green.
- Smashville in Super Smash Bros. Brawl has Town Hall's music (along with Tom Nook's Theme) playing in the background.
- In City Folk if a player is imported from Wild World, Tortimer will remember meeting them outside the town hall rather than in it, as occurs in Wild World. Pelly or Phyllis will mention the player is in fact a new resident, and Tortimer will dismiss it as déjà vu instead.
- A cranky villager will talk about donating bells and hearing Tortimer say "I'm having steak tonight!" or that Tortimer's installing a plasma TV at his house after the villager made a donation in Wild World.
- When it is nightime in New Leaf and the player has yet to read their new message there will be a white owl on top of the Bulletin Board instead, unlike City Folk where a yellow bird would appear regardless of the current time.
- The town hall is fitted with intercom speakers. The intercom talker is female, as applied to all the Animal Crossing games.
- In New Leaf, the plant on the southwest varies on each town creation.
- In Animal Crossing: Wild World and City Folk, Tortimer can be seen sleeping on a chair in the background of the town hall.
- In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, a picture of Tortimer is hung up on the wall behind the mayor seat, implying that Tortimer used to work there.
- In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, when looking through texture files, one can see that the Mayor's desktop wallpaper is Tortimer.
