1932 – St. Paul City Hall, Minnesota

Architect: Holabird & Root



Built between 1930 and 1932 and designed by architects Holabird and Root of Chicago, and Ellerbe and Company of Saint Paul, the building is Art Deco in style. In 1928, a $4 million public bond was designated for the building. However after the stock market crash of 1929, the cost of labor and materials was much less than anticipated. As a result, the building was finished with expensive domestic and foreign woods and marble, and artistic details were elaborate. The building was opened on December 19th, 1932.
