The Historic City Hall is a former public building in Anchorage, Alaska. It was built in 1936 to house the offices of the mayor, clerk, city engineer, and public utilities superintendent. It also housed the telephone switchboard, library, firemen?s quarters, a caretaker apartment, three jail cells, and a ?tank room? where disorderly drunks were meant to stay in for a night.

Built after the design of the resident architect E. Ellsworth Sedille, the Historic City Hall had an initial cost of $75,000. Today, it houses the offices of the Anchorage Convention and Visitors Bureau. The site also conducts a concert known as the Music in the Park every Wednesdays and Fridays at noon. If you?re attending this, it is also suggested that you take the one-hour Historic City Tour that starts at the site at 1pm every Mondays through Fridays.
