York City Hall

York City Hall • Order A Print

This stately Colonial Revival structure features a Neoclassical entrance with colossal portico with Ionic columns. It was built in 1941 in celebration of York’s 200th Anniversary. Of note, the cupola was inspired by the one on the York County Courthouse, and the lobby was inspired by Philadelphia’s Independence Hall. Frederick Dempwolf was architect of this stately building. Architectural features include pedimented portico with modillion course, keystones above windows, pedimented main entrance, and raised basement.
