Facts

  • Designed in the Richardsonian Romanesque style, the Old City Hall features Norman towers and Roman arches in its heavy rough cut stonework. The carved stonework has given it the nickname "Palace of the Plains."
  • A square clock tower dominates the facade, rising high on the skyline. It is surrounded by four round towers with conical roofs at each of the corners.
  • The building served as Wichita's city hall for 84 years until its replacement by the City Administrative Building.
  • Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971, it now houses the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum.
