The plaque says, "Built in the Richardsonian Romanesque style from a design by architect A.C. Willard, this building was remodeled in 1918 to resemble more closely the Mission Revival architecture of neighboring buildings. Originally the home of City Hall, the municipal courts, and the public library, this structure once featured an adjoining opera house as part of the orpheum theatrical circuit, its stage played host to W.C. Fields, Sarah Bernhardt, and other premier entertainers of the era. The Loring Opera House was destroyed by fire in 1990."
