Belding City Hall
On April 1, 1912, the citizens of Belding voted to issue a $15,000 bond to build a new city hall. At the time, the city jail was housed in an old barn and the dilapidated building rented by the city as a firehouse was called a "burning shame." Belding was a growing city made prosperous by the silk industry. Dedicated on Decoration Day (now known as Memorial Day) 1913. The new City Hall consolidated local services into a modern building. This classical Revival brick and sandstone building was designed by the Grand Rapids based architectural firm Osgood and Osgood. City Hall has housed numerous social and civic functions, including local Civil War veterans organized in Dan S. Root Post 126 of the Grand Army of the Republic.
