Tipperary Hall, which was a landmark at Buxton, lapsed into disuse in 1998. This building was primarily used by the residents for social and cultural events.
Tipperary Hall was built in 1909.
In 1911 it was registered as a burial society. The initial use of the building was expanded to include social, cultural and educational activities for the people of Buxton, Friendship and its environs.
The building was inaugurated by the chairman and councillors of Buxton and Friendship local authority.
