City hall, and it’s accompanying common, was completed in 1898. It is an Italianate structure designed by Robert Peabody and John Stearns. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1978. Peabody and Stearns are known for their incorporation of the tower as a key architectural form. The Worcester City Hall tower resembles that of the original Providence train station (now destroyed), also designed by Peabody and Stearns.
