Manhattan Township Office Building offices for the supervisor, clerk, assessor, and the town hall.  The Manhattan Food Pantry was also relocated to this building see schedule below.
Township officials are especially proud of the Hall, which is available for rental for meetings, showers, parties, etc.  The hall is also used as a polling place for elections.
The Manhattan Township Board purchased the former Alexander Lumber property on Wabash Street in 2014.  In 2016 the brick building on the property has been completely remodeled to include the hall, offices, and food pantry.  A paved parking lot was also added for the convenience of those visiting or using the building.
