Emeryville’s Town Hall

OAKLAND, Oct. 19 [1900] — The Town Trustees of Emeryville have taken the first steps toward the erection of a new town hall for the thriving little municipality.

At a meeting last night, Trustees Fieldwick, Emery and Christie were appointed a committee to select a suitable site for the proposed new building.

The present quarters of the town officials are large enough, but it is the general opinion that a new structure will greatly improve the appearance of the town. Several months ago, the Realty Syndicate offered to donate a site on a side street, but the offer was rejected.
