The current City Hall building was completed in 1955. The first City Hall, which was originally built as a school house in 1860, was also situated at this location until it was moved to 731 Maple Street. The community of Eudora was established in 1857 in the midst of the Bleeding Kansas conflict, when German immigrants purchased land from a Shawnee Indian leader named Paschal Fish to form the community.
