(4/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse, designed by Long and Kees in 1888, is the main building used by the city government of Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as by Hennepin County, Minnesota. The structure has served as mainly local government offices since it was built, and today the building is 60 percent occupied by the city and 40 percent occupied by the County. The building is jointly owned by the city and county and managed by the Municipal Building Commission. The Commission consists of the chair of the County Board, the mayor of the City of Minneapolis, a member of the County Board and a member of the Minneapolis City Council. The County Board chair serves as the president of the Commission and the mayor serves as the vice president. The building bears a striking resemblance to the city hall buildings in Cincinnati and Toronto. The City Hall and Courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.ArchitectureThe building replaced an earlier City Hall that existed from 1873 until 1912 near the old intersection between Hennepin Avenue and Nicollet Avenue. That structure eventually was razed to make way for Gateway Park, which continues to occupy part of the old City Hall site. The building also replaced an earlier courthouse and also the earlier Hennepin County Jail, which was located where the Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome once stood.

  • A very good example of an old public building. Inside is a warren of offices with.wood trim in abundance. A large beautiful statue of Neptune is in the lobby. 
  • This is a very beautiful example of great architecture. It's a must see in Minneapolis if you like to look at buildings. 
  • I came here on our last day in Minneapolis. City Hall was a few blocks from our hotel and I only wish I had spent more time exploring this building.

  • Book 2815 Page 639-641 not incomplete means me franklin eugene dockery jr 131 60 1722 owns Minneapolis Minnesota
  • Keep running MPLS
  • A city council that doesnt respect its own law and then tries to bully its constituents by releasing their personnal contact information to known terrorist groups like BLM
  • A terrible City Council run by Democrats for decades. Renaming Lake Calhoun really?? This liberal tools hear about a trend of renaming things and one of them looks up the history of the man this lake is named after and sure enough, they try and rename the lake! Luckily there is a law that prevents them from doing this but what do they do? They follow the direction of a vandal who put another name on the sign for the lake and put a SECOND NAME for the lake!!! They Mayor is a joke too along with the police chief (who is a lesbian and spends a large amount of time traveling doing meet and greets??).
  • City Hall is beautiful.
