Notes
Survey number HABS CA-417
Building/structure dates: 1909 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1950 subsequent work
Significance: The Berkeley City Hall has architectural significance as a notable example of Beaux-Arts design and as an early work by the firm of Bakewell and Brown, who were leaders in Beaux-Arts designs, especially of municipal buildings. The historical significance of the building is derived from its use as the home of Berkeley city government from 1909 to 1977, and from its current use as the meeting place of both the City Council and the Board of Education.
