Hendersonville City Hall

This is the last of four post on Downtown Hendersonville, North Carolina. I am working on entries on Carl Sandburg's Home in Flat Rock, North Carolina which I hope to start posting soon.
Hendersonville City Hall was build in 1928 and is located on at 145 Fifth Avenue. Housed in the building is the Mayor's Office, Police Department, Water Department and other city offices. The Hendersonville Fire Department was housed in the basement were the Police Department is located now. The Fire Department moved to a new building in Boyd Park when city hall was renovated in 2005.
This is the back entrance where you enter to pay your water bill and go to the Police Department.
This statue is of the three Presidents of the United States of America that were born in North Carolina. These Presidents are Andrew Jackson, James Knox Polk and Andrew Johnson. The statue is the actual ceramic model that was used to make the molds used in the casting of the bronze statue that is on Capital Square in Raleigh, North Carolina.
This is with the sign that tell about the statue and how it came to be in City Hall.
