Columbus City Hall
This 1892 Richardsonian Romanesque building was designed by T.D. Allen of Minneapolis using local materials. It originally housed the Library, Kindergarten and Fire Station in addition to the City Offices, Police Departments and Auditorium. The Annex was added in 1998.
The marker is located at the Columbus City Hall on southbound North Dickason Boulevard, just north of its intersection with West James Street / Wisconsin Highway 16 / 60, at 105 North Dickason Boulevard, Columbus, Wisconsin 53925.

The City of Columbus Historic Landmarks and Preservation Commission has authorized and produced a booklet of information about the City of Columbus featuring paintings by Susan Stare and other historic artifacts. Researched and edited by Alice L. Schmidt and Suzanne T. Walcott. Click here to view the booklet.

The marker is mounted on the facade to the right of the entrance.
