From left are the Kapitoleum or Town Hall, the New Sweden Historical Society Museum (the original Town Hall/Kapitoleum), and Capitol Hill School. After the Town Hall was built it provided a meeting place with a recreation center for the town.
In 1970, a fire started in the Kapitoleum and spread to the Museum resulting in the loss of both buildings. An exact replica of the Museum was constructed from plans drawn by Henry Anderson of New Sweden.
