This building is under renovation. It would have been a grand building in it day. Worth seeing but would have been a lot better if the renovation was completed instead of a printed awning.

In the old town square there is old city hall. This City Hall is large -- in comparison with many other City Halls that can be found in other cities. Very nice architecture... I would say -- something to enjoy particularly during Summer....
