City Hall – Winona MN

Description

Winona’s historic city hall was constructed during the Great Depression as a Public Works Administration (PWA) New Deal project. Sometimes mis-attributed to the Works Progress Administration (WPA), this three-story brick and Winona stone structure was constructed in 1938-9. The PWA provided a grant of $103,815 for the project, whose total cost was $216,406.

“The building was renovated and expanded in 2004. It was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 1999.”
