Worcester City Hall

Worcester City Hall was designed by Peabody and Sterns and built by the Norcross Brothers in 1898. The Italianate structure was built with a granite exterior, and was partly modeled after Italian Renaissance palazzos. Its tower shares some similarity to that of the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, Italy, and the interior of the building extensively uses marble, commonly seen in Italian Renaissance buildings, and features an interior courtyard where the upper floors have balconies supported by decorated round arches. City Hall is currently the 4th tallest building in Worcester and was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. This sketch has a feel of an old post card with the muted colors. Faber-Castell Pitt art pens and Holbein watercolors in a Stillman and Birn Beta sketchbook.
