About Cambridge City Hall

The Cambridge City Hall was erected between 1888 and 1889, and its architecture represents the Richardsonian Romanesque style. The building is a wonder of its time, with three large floors and stones made from granite. Offices for the Cambridge city council, manager, and some departments are located here, so as to better serve the Cambridge community. Although close to Central Square, the Hall is also very close in location to Inman Square. Cambridge City Hall issued the first same-sex marriage licenses in the United States in May of 2004. Are you getting married? Browse our Cambridge weddings section. If you are looking for marriage licenses, Cambridge City Hall issues those, at $15 less than Boston institutions. The city hall is known for its speedy and fast services. As one reviewer put it, “We were in and out in five minutes. Not complaining, just baffled … I didn’t waste my entire day, we both have all our fingers and health insurance in case we do lose one. Sweet.”
