Old City Hall

Upon entering the front north door of the beautiful red brick City Hall, two sets of stairs rose to the left and the right, following the path of the (stairstep) windows seen in the photograph.  The city offices are believed to have been on the second floor.  The south side entrance opened into the Fire Department.  With the team of horses standing facing the door, their harness was overhead and ready to be dropped onto them when the fire bell rang.  The old City Hall burned on March 29, 1913.
