Lambertville’s City Hall (18 York St.) lies on the corner of North Union and York Streets. Built in 1870 by A. H. Holcombe, the Holcombe family remained there until 1922. In 1950, the City purchased the structure for use as a City Hall. For years, the building housed the police department, the municipal court, and the public library in addition to administrative offices which now remain. The design is an excellent example of the French Second Empire style.
To see Lambertville's largest homes, built for its early upper class and "captains of industry," walk three blocks further north on Union Street and return to City Hall.
From City Hall, walk south on N. Union Street. As you pass by, look at the building opposite City Hall.
