1. Brigham City Fire Station/City Hall Marker
Inscription. Constructed in 1909 at a cost of about $7000, this building original housed the city fire department on the main floor and city offices on the second floor. It also had a jail in the southeast corner and "hobo apartments" in the basement. This was the first city hall built in Brigham City, the city offices having been been previously located in the adjacent county courthouse. In 1935 the fire department moved out, and the fire-truck bay on the facade was replaced with the existing brick facade to better accommodate city office use of the main floor. The building continued to serve as the city hall until 1974. Designed by local architect Andrew Funk, this building is the only example of the Spanish Colonial style in Brigham City.
