City Hall

Philadelphia's City Hall, completed in 1901, located in the center of the city, is the largest occupied masonry structure in the world and the largest municipal building in the nation.

The William Penn statue atop City Hall is an unmistakable feature of the Philadelphia cityscape.

Until the 1980s, this example of French Second Empire architecture was the tallest building in Philadelphia.
Now, it shares the skyline with shining examples of modern architecture such as One Liberty Place, towering in the background.
