City Hall – Bigfork MN

Description

Constructed by the WPA in 1936:

“The Bigfork City Hall is one of the only original historic buildings still standing in this northwoods town of approximately 450 people. The building, constructed in 1936 as a Depression-era federal relief project, consists of cast concrete exterior walls faced with field stones. Today, the building houses a small clerk’s office, with a public meeting room on the ground level and a VFW meeting hall in the basement and former firehouse bay.”   (http://www.mnpreservation.org)
