This grand building was entered on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976. Built in 1872, it was intended to be the county courthouse, but was never used for that purpose. Through the years, the building has served as a city hall and a college. The upstairs featured a stage and auditorium seating. School programs, city drama productions, and Chautauqua performances took place there. In 1905, Peter Niles Johnston provided a bequest for the city to establish a permanent library in the building.
