Swansea Main Library and Swansea Town Hall located on Main Street
An excerpt from a Fall River Herald News article dated 3/12/2009: "Kevin Lawton, library director at the Swansea Library, said the library, the town hall and [Christ] church were
intentionally built to represent three diverse styles of architecture, possibly to provide town residents with an
education in architecture."
"Prominent town resident Frank Stevens paid for the town hall construction and left money in his will for the library
and church. Stevensí friend, Henry Vaughn, the architect of the National Cathedral, designed the town hall building in
the Romanesque style. The town hall, which was built in 1891, was originally used as a town meeting place. "
