On the northwest corner of dark and Washington stands the combination County Building and City Hall (1911). The County Building is the older of the twin buildings designed by Holabird and Roche. Its Beaux-Arts classicism was typical of civic architecture in the first decades of this century. The heavy Corinthian columns quickly establish the importance of the buildings, Clark Street has developed as the government center of Chicago and even of Cook County. For those interested in doing research on Chicago's history. City Hall contains the excellent Municipal Reference Library.

The above photograph shows the County Building and City Hall at Clark, Washington, LaSalle, and Randolph Streets in 1985. Notice its block-square neoclassical structure.
