The Denham Springs City Hall was listed in the National Register of Historic Places listings in Louisiana on April 16, 1993. It was constructed in the late 1930s by the WPA and last used in the 1980s. A complete restoration, costing some $695,000,[2] was completed in late 2008 and rededication ceremonies held on April 17. The building now serves as a tourism office, where maps and information are distributed to people visiting the Antique Village.[3] The original building housed the mayor and sheriff's offices, library, and the jail.[3]
