Welcome to the TNMCorps Q&A community!

Several towns in my area refer to their principal town offices as the "Town House" on signage and/or official websites. The term "town hall" is also often used colloquially by the public. Is it preferable to use the official nomenclature that doesn't match expected name formatting, or to standardize point names according to what the system prefers?

EDIT: As an alternative, "Town House" could be used in the Address 2 field, as a building designator.

The term entered for a town hall point should match authoritative sources, even if the official term deviates from colloquial usage. So if Town House is the term officially used by the town or municipality, this is the term that should be entered into the Name field. The Address 2 field is reserved for building designators such as Building A or Smith Hall, so if additional explanation is required, the Comment field can be utilized.
