Long Description:
The cornerstone for the City Hall building in Montpelier, Idaho was laid on July 7, 1916. It was built of buff-colored brick that was manufactured by the Utah Pressed Brick and Tile Company, in Ogden, Utah and is built in the neo-classical revival style. It is the oldest building in the district and has a pair of Tuscan columns that give it a distinguished appearence.

In 1918, when a flu epidemic swept thru Bear Lake Valley, the City Hall building was used to store the overflow of bodies from the mortuary. This building is on the National Register of Historic Places.
