Montreal City Hall is constructed as a five story, almost castle building on Notre-Dame Street in the old section of Montreal. When construction finished in 1878 the building was considered to be the standard for Second Empire Style architecture. Still functioning as the administrative hub for the city Montreal's City Hall is as much a museum to the city's history as it is a government center. The original building was almost destroyed in 1922 by fire, leading to painstaking efforts to restore the it to its former glory. While updates are made to maintain the structures careful care is taken to maintain the building's history.
