The "old" City Hall, Yacolt, Washington. Image taken April 19, 2011. Canon SX120.

This old brick building was occupied by City Hall from 1908 until 2009, when City Hall moved a few blocks over into a newer building. After the Yacolt Burn of 1902, the building was made of brick to last forever. The building also doubled as the town jail. Today the town of Yacolt hopes to turn the building into a museum.
