Samuel W. Thomas notes, "Only the eastern third of the huge Mansard-domed City Hall envisioned by architect John Andrewartha was built. The clock and bell tower completed in 1873 burned two years later and was replaced by one designed by Henry Whitestone. This may be the only extant photograph of the original tower."
