Construction of old City Hall on this site was begun in 1869 and completed in 1872 at a cost of $175,000. The 140-foot high building of Gothic design contained dark cream Amherst stone and was one of the prominent landmarks of its day. First floor was occupied by the U.S. Post Office, the Columbus Public Library and the City Board of Trade. City Council Chamber and office rooms were located on the second floor and a public auditorium seating 3000 persons occupied the third floor. The building was destroyed by a $75,000 fire the night of January 21, 1921. Construction of the present Loew's Ohio Theater building was completed March 17, 1928. On opening night Mayor James J. Thomas delivered the dedicatory address.
