Construction on Old City Hall began in 1886 from an architectural design by Alfred Eichberg, and was completed in 1889, with the installation of the clock/bell tower in 1893. The architectural style is "Richardsonian Romanesque", with Queen Anne parallels. Massive in stature, with the unusual addition of Italianate brackets, Romanesque architecture was the style of choice for the majority of public buildings built in the United States during this period. Elaborate terra cotta friezes decorate our Old City Hall clock tower and side entries, while the corner columns adorned with gargoyles gaze welcomingly at you and your guests. The only facility of its kind open to the general public in Brunswick, Old City Hall offers a wonderful historic structure with elegant appointments at a modest price. Atmosphere: Historic granite and brick exterior with working clock tower; interior with original heart-pine flooring, fireplace mantles; marble entry floor and marble side accents; original (refitted) gaslight fixtures; original chandeliers and brass fittings. The Historic Courtroom lends an elegant glow to class reunions, wedding receptions, meetings, seminars or seasonal parties showcased within its walls.
