Dixon City Hall built in 1906, not 1871

Thanks for an interesting article on the Dixon City Hall building. There is a puzzle embedded in the article, however. It states, “the building…was constructed in 1871.”

This is a real puzzle because the building does not look 146 years old, inside or out; the style of the building is definitely early 1900s; and emblazoned above the front door in foot-high letters is “A.D. 1906.”

Is it not likely that the reporter missed the obvious clue, and that the article should have read: “The original building on the site was constructed in 1871 and the current structure in 1906.”
