Holly City Hall

Prowers County

The 1938 Holly City Hall held the town’s police and fire departments, library, and a multi-use community room.  The Holly City Hall served effectively for over sixty years as an important center of town life.  The Depression-era Works Progress Administration (WPA) used local labor and materials to construct the hall as a town sponsored project.

The building typifies the simple but dignified designs used by the WPA for city hall and courthouse construction.  The property is associated with the New Deal Resources on Colorado’s Eastern Plains Multiple Property Submission.
