City Hall to Hold Open House to Showcase Renovations

The public is invited to tour the newly renovated Seymour City Hall during an after-hours open house in December.

Staff will be available from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Dec. 9 to take people on tours of the facility and talk about the renovations including the addition of an art gallery that features locally submitted artwork.

There are currently 50 pieces of art by 36 artists on display with room to add more. Submissions are still being accepted.

Holiday punch and Laura Jo's cookies will be served during the open house. Those who cannot attend can drop in during business hours from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday of that week to request a tour.

Renovations began in May 2021 after the decades-old HVAC system quit working and the chiller leaked causing significant damage in the back part of city hall near parks and rec. offices.

The $1.5 million in updates include a new HVAC, newly painted walls in a bright color palette, new carpet and lighting, new handicapped-accessible restrooms featuring automatic no-touch facilities, a new conference room and added office space.

The building that houses city hall was built in 1929 by W.J. Abraham of Seymour for the Southern Indiana Telephone and Telegraph Co. The Moorish-influenced structure was occupied in the latter part of 1930 or early 1931. It became city hall in October 1995.

A display of antique phones, donated by the former phone company, is installed in the large conference room.

There are now four conference rooms in city hall, all of which have been named for former Seymour mayors.

  • The Charles Miles Conference Room is the small conference room and is located near the Mayor’s office. Charles Miles was the only mayor to die while still in office.
  • The Daniel Johnson Conference Room is the largest and honors one of Seymour’s longest serving mayors. Daniel Johnson served four terms or 16 years in office.
  • The A.P. Charles Conference Room was added as part of the renovation project and is located towards the back of the building near the parks department offices. Charles served as mayor for six years from 1870-72 and again from 1874-78.
  • The George Green Council Chambers is where city council meets twice a month. Green was Seymour’s first mayor from 1865-1868.

City departments housed at city hall include the mayor’s office, transit, parks and recreation, planning and zoning, engineering and legal. Housing Authority, Seymour Main Street and Leadership Jackson County also have office space in city hall.

The clerk-treasurer's office, Seymour Municipal Sanitation Utility, human resources and Jackson County Industrial Development Corp. are located on the south side of the building, which was not part of the recent renovation project.
