Karavas was declared a municipality in 1884, after the arrival of the English colonists. All the Municipal Councils that served Karavas, along with the Cultural Associations of the town contributed to the economic, social and cultural development of the town.

The Town Hall was built in 1958 on the main street of Karavas, the “Praxandrou Avenue”, and housed the offices of the Municipality, the Library, the Municipal Theatre and the Market.
