City Hall, City of Quincy
Built in 1844, old City Hall is one of the oldest functioning seats of government in the country. Its academic Greek Revival architecture has been described as one of the outstanding examples of mid-century classical American design. Unusual in both its monumentality and in the severity of its granite detail, these features may be attributed to its architect Solomon Willard, who was instrumental in the development of the granite industry in Quincy. Historic Preservation work is currently underway.
