On southwest corner of Government Square is Grand Manse Pavilion. Previously, this structure was a small municipal comfort station designed in 1924 by Lincoln architect, Fritz Craig. The single-story classically-influenced building offered amenities for the designated route along the Detroit-Lincoln-Denver Highway and reflects the expansion of government services. Like its two larger neighbors, Old City Hall and Grand Manse, it has undergone several renovations and is now a rental living quarters.
