Summary

Significance: The Salmon City Hall and Library building has exceptional architectural significance as an example of the art deco style. The influence of the architectural firm of Tourtellotte and Hummel, would have been unlikely to reach this out-of-the-way location but for the centralization of design opportunities afforded by the federal programs (WPA) of the 1930's. The native sandstone was quarried and the building constructed with WPA labor. Frank Hummel is cited as the senior architect for the project. This building was placed on the National Register of Historical Places on 11/17/82 as part of a thematic nomination of Tourtellotte and Hummel Architecture in Idaho.
