Inscription. Constructed in 1920 by local contractor L.C. Baldwin, the new City Hall was formally dedicated in February 1921 by Mayor E.L. Scobee. The building housed the city offices and council chambers on the main floor, and the fire and police statins on the lower level. Distinctive cast stone garlands and light hoods decorate the building's arched entry and brick facade. The building is still used by the City of Hood River.
