Statement of Significance (as of designation - November 7, 1973):
Completed in 1858 and built as a combination city hall and marketplace, this structure is an excellent example of the trend in 19th-century America toward structures combining more than one civic function. Italianate detailing includes wide bracketed eaves and a graceful rooftop belfry. Smaller flanking structures are linked to the twin-gabled main building by crenellated wing walls.
