Town Hall

-A A +A
1908, Silas W. Smith. 1360 Greene St. (corner of 14th St.)

A silvery, egg-shaped dome caps the open bell tower of this two-story building with a second-story balcony under a Neoclassical pediment supported by paired Ionic columns. Built of Silverton's distinctive local rosy-purple sandstone, it was restored in the 1970s, then re-restored after a Thanksgiving weekend fire in 1992 caused by a heating system that kept snow off the roof. The original town hall and fire station (1883), with a hook and ladder carved over the door, still stands at 1245 Blair Street.
