The old City Hall was built in 1892.
The City Hall bid was let for $5,324 to J.D. Carroll of Mankato, Minnesota. He ran short of materials and for a time there was a threat of court action but the matter was settled and in December the City Council gave the builder a check for $5,597 for payment in full on the building stage flagpole and all extra work done. Canby population in 1892 was 616.

The new City Hall/Library (approximately one half of the present city building) was completed in March of 1960 at a cost of $52,899. The second half of City Hall was completed in October of 1980 at a cost of $250,000.

The bell was salvaged from the old City Hall when it was demolished. The bell weighs 970 lbs. and originally hung from the City Hall belfry 3 stories above the ground. This site is the same corner on which the old City Hall bell tower stood.
