Hastings City Hall, formerly the Dakota County Courthouse, is a historic government building in Hastings, Minnesota, completed in 1871. It was the original courthouse for Dakota County and now serves as city hall. It was designed by A.M. Radcliff, one of Minnesota's first architects, in an Italian Villa style. Although an addition built in 1955 in an entirely different style damaged the building's integrity, the building remains a prominent structure in downtown Hastings. It is listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. . . . #be_one_architecture #buildings_illife #timeless_unlimited #world_heritages_ #ig_monumentalworld #tv_buildings #fever_building #total_monuments #archi_focus_on #architecture_hunter #srs_buildings #buildingswow #ig_brilliant_buildings #historicarchitecture #architecture_greatshots #structure_bestshots #excellent_structure #gf_architecture #archi_ologie #going_into_details #onlyinmn #captivatemn #thisismymn #exploreminnesota #architecture #architecturephotography #architecturelovers #1_unlimited #addicted_to_facades #capturemn
