This building is three stories in height and constructed of white sandstone with steel construction and granite base. Above the six Ionic columns of the semi-circular porch is a denticulated cornice and above this a railing. The building was completed in 1923 by John Molitor. It was dedicated in 1925 and supplanted the old Town Hall, which was used as a hospital during the Civil War. The clock and the bell in the tower were formerly in Independence Hall. The building is currently in a state of abandon.
One thought on “Germantown (PA) Town Hall”
This Greek Revival building reminds me of a miniature copy of the 1834 Merchants Exchange Building a few miles away. “The Merchants’ Exchange Building is a historic building located on the triangular site bounded by Dock Street, Third Street, and Walnut Street in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ” ATB will try to get up an article featuring both buildings and include new original photography.
