Notes
Survey number HABS MO-250
Unprocessed field note material exists for this structure (FN-8, FN-89).
Building/structure dates: 1927 initial construction
Significance: At the time of it's dedication a newspaper editorial said, "St. Joseph has waited a long time for it's new City Hall, but we are convinced it was well worth waiting for, of striking beauty and dignity, the structure, as designed, is impressive and will be a real addition to the artistic resources of the city and state and an example of what can be done to make a modern place of public utility something fine. It is in line with the present day tendency to erect buildings which are primarily for practical service, yet beautiful in design and decoration."
