Lewiston City Hall is a historic building at Pine and Park Streets in Lewiston, Maine.
The hall was built in 1892 and added to the National Historic Register in 1976.
The original City Hall for the growing city of Lewiston was constructed in the footprints of its current location in 1871. The building was opened in 1872, at a cost of $200,000. The building stood for 18 years, until January 7, 1890, when a fire broke out behind an elevator wall, destroying the building. The uninsured City Hall was deemed a total loss.
The current City Hall building was opened on May 19, 1892. The total cost of construction, including demolishing the remains of the original building, came to $180,298.40. The building is 90 feet wide, 160 feet long, and 185 feet in height from the sidewalk to the roof spire.
