Description

Mayor Robert Rogers and city councilmen broke ground on the Coralville City Hall, also known as the City Civic Center, in September of 1973. The new building, designed by architect Harvey Henry, boasted a fireproof vault for city records, adjustable walls that could create different spaces, and offices for all city officials.

The building was estimated to be finished in March of 1974 and cost $180,000, though unforeseen complications meant officials weren't able to move in until mid-June (Coralville Courier, 1973; Coralville Courier, 1974).

The photograph was taken by Karin Becker for the book The Strip: An American Place, by Richard Horwitz.
