Long Description:
Les hôtels de ville ont longtemps reflété la prospérité et l'importance des collectivités qui les érigeaient. Pour cette raison, de nombreuses villes canadiennes ont construit, surtout entre 1900 et 1930, d'imposants édifices municipaux. Celui-ci, le deuxième de la ville de Roberval, a été bâti en 1928 et 1929. L'architecte Charles Lafond a animé sa composition au moyen de pavillons, d'une décoration classique et d'un escalier central. L'allure monumentale de l'édifice proclamait l'importance croissante de la ville comme centre administratif et capitale régionale du Lac Saint-Jean.
Roberval Town Hall
A town hall has long been regarded as a reflection of a community's prosperity and significance within its region. This inspired many Canadian towns and cities to erect substantial civic buildings, especially during the years between 1900 and 1930. Roberval built this, its second town hall, in 1928-1929. Local architect Charles Lafond provided a plan featuring pavilion-crowned towers, classical ornamentation and a monumental staircase, to create an imposing civic building which proclaimed the town's growing importance as an administrative and service centre in the Lac Saint-Jean region.
