Gallier Hall is the historic headquarters of the City of New Orleans. The building was originally designed to be the city hall of New Orleans by the architect, James Gallier, Sr. Construction began in 1845, and dedicated on 10 May 1853. Gallier Hall is a three-story marble structure fronted by two rows of fluted Ionic columns in the Neoclassical style. It is one of the most important structures built during the antebellum period of the city.
