Inscription.  
Built in 1970, in just 14 hours, Bronson's City Hall is made of reinforced fiberglass plastic. The building won the State of Michigan Product of the Year award, presented by the Michigan State Chamber of Commerce.

Bronson sold its old City Hall to make room for new building. Lynema Enterprise, a local concern, very much wanted to demonstrate how its plastic products could be used successfully in this way.

The building is 32 x 60 feet in area and 12 feet high. Wall and roof panels contain two inches of urethane insulation, sandwiched as a core between the exterior and interior panel surfaces. Both wall and roof panels are white reinforcement plastic. City Hall has 1920 square feet of floor space, and contains city offices, council meeting room, and a storage vault for city archives.

Korbuly-Graf, a South Bend, Indiana architectural firm that had designed our Senior Citizen's Housing Project were hired for the project.
 
Erected by Bronson Kiwanis Club.
