Celebration: 75th Anniversary Of City Hall

Monday, January 26th 2015 - 4:00 pm
at City Hall
210 Lottie Street

This month marks the 75th anniversary of Bellingham’s City Hall building. To mark the occasion Mayor Kelli Linville and Dr. Lynette Felber, of Chronicles Preservation Consultants, will host a celebration, featuring music by students at Birchwood Elementary School, a display of historic photos from the Whatcom Museum archives and more. The program will be aired live on BTV10 and streamed live on the City’s website.

In its time the City Hall building has been home to 13 mayors and has seen two major renovations in three quarters of a century. “I thought the story of how Bellingham gained a classy new Art Deco city hall through New Deal funding during the depths of the Great Depression needed to be told.”–Lynette Felber
