Notes
Survey number HABS MO-265

Building/structure dates: 1906 subsequent work

Significance: This structure, which has housed city government since 1898, is a city landmark by appearance and reputation. The design of the building was chosen from among six designs submitted through a national competition. Architecturally the building is an impressive period piece of craftsmanship and representative of a particular French Renaissance Revival style that is comparatively rare for public buildings in the US, as well as a seemingly sensitive gesture to the French heritage of the City of St. Louis.
