History

Original construction of the Historic Atascadero City Hall began in 1914 and was completed in 1918.   In 2003, the building sustained significant damage in the San Simeon Earthquake.  After being closed for 10 years, and undergoing extensive renovations and retrofitting, the building re-opened in August 2013.

For a detailed history of the building and to learn more about the renovation process, please click HERE.

During the renovation process, four historic fountains that grace the corners the building were restored to their original beauty. Built with the original construction, the fountains stopped working decades ago and were converted into planters.

How to schedule a tour: Please email atascaderocolonymuseum@gmail.com or call (805) 466-8341. The Atascadero Historical Society is a volunteer based organization and therefore emails will most likely receive a faster response.
