Minneapolis City Hall and Hennepin County Courthouse(also known as the "Municipal Building"), designed by Long and Kees in 1888, is the main building used by the city government of Minneapolis, Minnesota as well as by Hennepin County, Minnesota. The structure has served many different purposes since it was built, although today the building is 60 percent occupied by the city and 40 percent occupied by the County. The building is jointly owned by the city and county divided right down the middle and controlled by the [http://www.municipalbuildingcommission.org/ Municipal Building Commission]. The Commission consists of the chair of the County Board, the mayor of the City of Minneapolis, a member of the County Board and a member of the Minneapolis City Council. The County Board chair serves as the president of the Commission and the mayor serves as the vice president.The City Hall and Courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. - Source: Wikipedia
