With a loan of 130.000 drachmas from the National Bank, the decision was taken to build the Town Hall on the Public Garden, in the west side of Athens. The architectural study was assigned to the architect, P. Kalkos, (under Mayor P. Kyriakou) and on October 1872 the construction of the building started and was completed on May 1874.
In the beginning it was a two-story building, in an austere neoclassical design. In 1901, under Mayor S. Mercouris, works of restoration and decoration were made. In 1937 the third level was added.
