Additional Details:
Fall River was founded in 1803, incorporated a city in 1854. In 1845 a town hall was built and partly destroyed by fire in 1886. The city hall was located over the Quequechan river, meaning "Falling Water". At one time a fish market was located in city hall and the Quequechan river facilitated the disposal of all sewage. In 1962 city hall was transferred to Hotel Mellen and the city hall was demolished. Depollution of the Quequechan river and decking over route 195 will enable Fall River to build a new city hall of modern architecture, a symbol of progress.
