Titusville City Hall was originally constructed as a private residence c. 1865. Soon after its construction, the building was sold and then transformed into a hotel. Known as the “Bush House”, it became a landmark to an area in the heart of the oil region. Until 1872, the structure served as a center of social life for the city and the region. With the need of local governing authorities, the Bush House was acquired by the city and became Titusville City Hall. It has continued to serve in this capacity for over 140 years.
