Noteworthy Classification Features:

The Village Hall is a two-story brick building with a flat roof. The Village Hall entrance has a limestone surround with art deco motifs and the words “Village Hall” inscribed. Two sconces in polished steel flank the front entrance. Buttressed half-moon concrete projections separate the windows on the basement level. Limestone coursing bands extend the lintels and sills of the second floor windows. The multi-tiered lintels on the first floor windows are made of cast stone. There are two art deco motifs between the first floor windows. The auditoreum building has four large projecting towers that extend above the roof line and are capped with limestone. Tall, textured glass block windows between the towers are each topped with art deco motifs. A black, flat roof awning projects from the front of the building with two steel bands on the frieze. The sign on the awning announces “The Park District Auditorium.” Smooth limestone sprandrel panels are indented with tri-partite vertical lines.
