Alexandria City Hall

alexandria va

The Alexandria City Hall was built on a location designated for the market and city hall when Alexandria was established in 1749. The tall tower is a reconstruction of a tower designed by Benjamin H. Latrobe that was part of Alexandria's 1817 town hall. That hall burned in 1871. As a result, the current City Hall was rebuilt by Adolph Cluss, a local architect who designed the U.S. Department of Agriculture building in 1869 and Washington's Central Market in 1870. Originally, the City Hall also housed the Masonic Lodge, court facility, and police and fire stations. Today, the City Hall building houses still houses many government offices, including the second floor City Council Chambers.
