Mercedes City Hall and Fire Station

-A A +A
1927, Ralph H. Cameron and R. Newell Waters. 323 S. Ohio Ave.

Distinct from that of Weslaco, the combined city services facility stands out not only in Mercedes but also in the region as red-bricked rendition of an English country house. Its steeply pitched and stepped-gable parapet also recalls the architecture of the Low Countries.
