Rogers Officials Mull Use For Former City Hall
Posted: March 20, 2014 at 6 a.m.
How to best use a building at Third and Poplar streets most recently used for county government satellite offices was the question before officials touring the building Wednesday.
AT A GLANCE
The former city hall at Third and Poplar streets has a history spanning several decades.
• The building was a Masonic Lodge, where the DeMolay held dances, before the city bought the building for a City Hall about 1985.
• City offices moved into the current City Hall at 301 W. Chestnut St. in 2006.
• Benton County leased the space from the city in 2007 as a courthouse annex and remained until March. County officials cited the lack of parking space as a reason for the move. County officials bought the former USA Drug building at 15th and Walnut streets and moved the annex there.
