National Historic Civil Engineering Landmark
Since its completion 30 years after construction began in 1871, City Hall has dominated the center city Philadelphia skyline. At Penn Square, the building is still the world's tallest masonry load bearing structure, made of 88 million bricks and thousands of tons of stone. City Hall is the nation's most elaborate seat of municipal government. It is the finest American example of the French Second Empire style, widely used in late 19th century public buildings.
