Honey Grove City Hall and Jail

-A A +A
1889; 2000 rehabilitated. 633 N. 6th St.

This Italianate City Hall has continuously served the town since its completion. The City Council awarded the construction contract to W. N. Allen, who constructed the two-story building with honey-colored limestone from the local Floyd Quarry. Its honed-finish walls are detailed with a modest stringcourse at the second story and pilasters on the facade and are capped by a pressed-metal cornice and standing-seam metal, hipped roof. Rising above the front central bay is a square tower with a convex mansard roof and louvered lantern.
