Inscription.  
This building, constructed in 1936, was completely paid for by the City of Gillette, without bonds or increased taxation, a source of pride for this community. The mayor's office, clerk's office, and courtroom were on the first floor with fire department in the back. The police department and city jail were on the lower level. In 1967, a large addition was constructed on the west end of the building to provide more space for the city fire department. All city offices were here until 1978.
