Novato in Marin County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
(Novato) City Hall
901 Sherman Avenue
City Hall renovation took place in 2008-2009, which involved moving the building 12 feet north to a new foundation and reinforcing the structure and its then-fragile steeple, while preserving its historic nature. Two adjacent structures were removed to create a civic green.
In addition to hosting City Council and other civic meeting, the building serves as public venue for events such as receptions, banquets, and small performances. It is renowned as the iconic symbol of Novato.
Erected by Novato Historical Guild.
