Where's Sparkie? Visiting Santa Maria City Hall

{{featured_button_text}}

Sparkie was visiting Santa Maria City Hall, built in 1934. The first floor originally housed municipal offices and departments as well as the City Judge, the Chamber of Commerce and the Department of Motor Vehicles. The second floor included the men’s and women’s jails.

The city administrative offices had moved three times since incorporation in 1905. The final move was to 110 E. Cook Street, between Broadway and McClelland Street.

Council room furniture was designed and built by Gaylord Jones, a Santa Maria decorative craftsman. The office furniture was custom built. The building was dedicated City Historical Landmark Number 7 in 1985.

The city administration continues to be housed in this building and the city council, planning commission and parks commission meet in the council chambers. The beautiful Moorish tower is a unique aspect of this building designed with a Spanish motif along the lines of the early California Mission style.

Check back here next Friday for another “Where’s Sparkie?” contest.
