City Hall Improvements – Santa Rosa CA

Description

The WPA completed renovations and improvements to Santa Rosa’s City Hall. The city’s original 1883 City Hall and Central Library were destroyed in the 1906 earthquake, and a new building was constructed in 1913. Santa Rosa’s new City Hall—now known as the Santa Rosa Civic Center—was completed in 1969. The exact location and present status of the old city hall is not presently known to Living New Deal.
