Photo: Historic City Hall Building Montreal Canada

Designated a Canadian National Historic Site, the City Hall building situated in Vieux (old) Montreal in Canada was originally built between 1872 and 1878.

The original City Hall building was constructed along the Second Empire style of architecture which is also a style known as Napoleon III. Construction began in 1872 and was completed by 1878. Unfortunately a severe fire in 1922 gutted the elegant historic building leaving only the exterior walls. A completely new building was constructed inside the shell of the ruins and a new modern roof of copper was installed to replace the original slate tiles.

Situated across the street (Rue Notre-Dame) from Place Jacques-Cartier in Old Montreal, Canada - the building is bordered on one side by Place Vauquelin and backs onto Champ-de-Mars - a large public park which contains the remains of the city's original fortifications.
