Description

This former City Hall at the corner of 6th and Elm was erected in 1939 as a Federal Administration of Public Works Project (No. Calif 1905 F). This building has been replaced by a newer city hall next door. The city of Coalinga suffered a devastating earthquake 5/2/1983 which destroyed most of the commercial buildings downtown. Amazingly, this building has survived and has retained much of its original character.
