Village Hall – Bovey MN

Description

"This small village hall has a distinct Scandinavian flavor and might almost be standing in some Swedish village rather than in Bovey, Minnesota. It is two stories and a basement in height and in the basement houses a garage for the fire department, a large dining room, kitchen and pantry, storage space, and the heating plant. On the first floor are offices for the police department, the council room, a library, and a club room. The second floor is occupied by a large auditorium with a stage and dressing rooms.

The building is steel and reinforced concrete with exterior walls of brick and a roof covered with copper. It was completed in June 1935 at a construction cost of $65,775 and a project cost of $71,000."

The hall is still in use today as the town's city hall.
