Old City Hall Marker  


Site of the Old City Hall at Ashley St. and Hill Ave. The City Hall, a brick and granite two-story structure built in 1895, was "the ornament of the town" with its 70-ft. Clock Tower. For 63 years it served as A City Hall, as the City Library until 1913, and as a public gathering place with an auditorium that could seat 600 persons for plays, operas, and traveling shows. By 1958 the City Government had outgrown this building and moved to new facilities on N. Toombs Street.
