The cupola for City Hall was saved by Ron Black and his mother Elaine. Many hours of work were required to carefully pry it off the building. It now resides in Firemen’s Park in Hutchinson as a monument to firefighters and the city hall building it once crowned.
Prior to the building’s demolition in 1994, an open house was held to talk about its future. According to a Leader article published at the time, 15 people showed up. Eighty years earlier, 1,500 people attended its grand opening.
