RIDGEFIELD — Clark County’s Historic Preservation Commission has listed the Ridgefield City Hall building to the Clark County Heritage Register. The building is located at 230 Pioneer St., State Route 501.
Built in 1920, the Ridgefield City Hall building is one of the oldest structures remaining in Ridgefield’s traditional downtown core.
The building was originally used as a bank and it is historically known as the Ridgefield State Bank. It was an anchor of early commerce in the town. The building has been in use as the Ridgefield City Hall since 1975.
The building is a rare example of formal Classical Revival architecture in Ridgefield. In the state of Washington, the building is one of the few remaining smaller banks of the era and it has a high level of historic integrity.
