Civilizing the Suburbs one Dome at a Time

Frederick Hogdon is listed as the architect of City Hall at Highland Park Illinois. Classical Revival in its 1920's splendor, completed in 1930 (at the beginning of the Depression), when the City Planning on the North Shore Train Lines was at its most impressive. I need to go inside this facility (of course it is locked) and see for myself why it has a Dome, but I am sure that the lack of Domes on modern City Halls contributes to the general lack of Civilization in Civic Life.
