Fodor's Review

The intersection of Meeting and Broad streets is known as the Four Corners of Law, representing the laws of nation, state, city, and church. On the northeast corner is the Adamesque-style City Hall, built in 1801. Visitors enjoy viewing the historic portraits that hang in the second-floor council chamber (the second-oldest continuously used council chamber in the country), with highlights including John Trumbull's 1791 portrait of George Washington and Samuel F. B. Morse's

likeness of James Monroe.
