The clock tower featured four, 14-foot stone maidens on its cornice representing justice, industry, art and commerce.
The building featured sculptures of Fr. Gabriel Richard, Antoine Cadillac, Fr. Jacques Marquette and Sieur de LaSalle created by Julius Theodore Melchers.
After a very public and bitter debate between city officials and preservationists, the structure was razed in 1961. In its place a public square was constructed which was razed in 2005 to make room for One Kennedy Square.
