After the division of the town in 1920, the Latvian side also needed it’s culture centre, and in 1927 the construction of the building designed by the architect A.Raisters was completed. This building can be considered one of the most significant public buildings in northern Vidzeme built in 1920-40ies. The building adheres to Neoclassical forms and it is representative of the Latvian architecture of the time.
