Old City Hall

Old City Hall

City Hall constructed in 1895 was the center of village government, village offices, the library, the police department and the fire department.  City Hall symbolized the optimism of the residents in serving as a community center.  The hall on the 2nd floor of the building was a site for bridal showers, dances, lantern slide programs, traveling theater companies, minstrel shows, graduation exercises for the high school, horticultural shows sponsored by the garden club, political events, athletic events, agricultural shows, business and industry fairs, poultry shows, and small farm animal shows. High School students had a recreational center in City Hall.  The building was in constant use.

In July 2018, the building was significantly impacted by a natural gas explosion which totally destroyed the building on the northwest and southwest corner of this intersection, In late 2020, the building was undergoing a complete renovation with attention to its historic detail.
