Norwalk City Hall – Norwalk CT

Description

“This structure replaces an old high-school building which had become inadequate to care for the student body of 1,200.

The building contains 32 classrooms, an auditorium, boys’ and girls’ gymnasiums, administrative offices, a library, domestic science rooms, shops, a study hall, a cafeteria, and rooms for music.

The construction consists of a steel frame, exterior brick bearing walls trimmed with cast stone and reinforced concrete floor slabs on metal lumber.

The structure is three stories and a basement in height and its fominating feature is the tower at the auditorium entrance. It was completed in December 1937 at a construction cost of $789,379 and a project cost of $909,689.”
