City Hall: Worcester's "Palace for the People
Take a summertime tour with Preservation Worcester!
Discover City Hall and Worcester Common. Turn your mind back to 1898 when City Hall was just completed – a time when Worcester was a wealthy and prosperous industrial city expressing its pride in an unusually beautiful new home for city government. Find out what was the inspiration for the tower that soars above Main Street. See Worcester’s smallest monument. Enjoy the fine craftsmanship of the grand marble staircase, its elaborate cast iron railing, and its silver-leafed barrel vault overhead.

In September 1774 thousands of Central Massachusetts militiamen put an end to British rule in rural Massachusetts. Two years before the signing of the Declaration of Independence, the men and women of Worcester County fought and won their own revolution - without firing a shot!
