This unusual church like civic building in Syracuse was built by a local architect from 1889 to 1893 in Romanesque Revival architectural style. Some time ago the bell tower contained a bell which was used for fire alarm. Built with beautifully carved, locally mined, Onondaga limestone. For a better view of the stone work I attached a closeup view of the tower to the picture of the building.

Romanesque revival, now that's something I don't see very often and it is a wonderful style. This building is unusual, and very attractive. I am glad you gave the split scene showing the close up of the tower as well, it does give. Great appreciation for that finely entailed stonework. Nice one!
