1. City Hall Marker
Inscription. The City Hall was built 1880-81 at a cost of $2500.00, which included the price of the land. A meeting hall for the town's Board of Trustees, and office area for the town recorder, two jail cells, and accommodations for fire fighting equipment were located inside.

The existing fire bell tower was added some time prior to 1920.

The building has been in continuous use as a city meeting hall since its completion in 1881. Total restoration, sponsored by the Jacksonville Booster Club, was started in 1980 and completed in 1981.
