Town Halls of Rhode Island #1 — City Halls of the North

I have always been impressed with town halls. In many cases, a community pours its heart and soul into this building which often serves to characterize the city or town for eons. The architecture is often unusual and interesting in order to make the building stand out and be easily recognized. Town Halls are typically constructed of materials which are meant to last. Rhode Island is blessed with many lovely town halls, and these posts will highlight my favorites. Come along and enjoy the Town Halls of Rhode Island.

Providence’s City Hall is distinctive and impressive, presiding over Kennedy Plaza and Burnside Park.

Pawtucket chose an Art Deco design for its City Hall. It has become controversial recently since the tower leaks when it rains and has cost the struggling city a lot of money over the years.

Nearby Central Falls’ city hall looks like many other RI town halls, built of red brick with a tall tower.
