In a ceremony with almost city officials present, the cornerstone for the new Baltimore City Hall was laid in the Maryland city.  The new structure, with its frontage on Fayette Street and constructed of locally quarried white marble, would take eight years to complete and was officially opened on October 25, 1875.  (By John Osborne)
