On September 6, 2020 we visited the downtown historic district in Brunswick, Georgia, USA to photograph all things of interest. One of our favorite images from the group of photographs we captured is this photograph of the "Old City Hall". Following is some history of this beautiful majestic building.
Built at a cost of $33,000, Old City Hall was fully restored with special purpose local option sales tax (SPLOST) dollars and reopened in 2004. Its gleaming heart-pine and marble floors, original vintage fireplaces and newly refitted gaslight fixtures lend an air of old fashioned elegance to any gathering.
Construction on Old City Hall began in 1886 from an architectural design by Alfred Eichberg, and was completed in 1889, with the installation of the clock/bell tower in 1893. The architectural style is "Richardsonian Romanesque", with Queen Anne parallels.
Massive in stature, with the unusual addition of Italianate brackets, Romanesque architecture was the style of choice for the majority of public buildings built in the United States during this period. Elaborate terracotta friezes decorate our Old City Hall clock tower and side entries, while the corner columns adorned with gargoyles gaze extending a welcome to you and your guests.
All visits to our FAA-Pixels art-sites are welcomed, encouraged and very much appreciated. Please visit often.
