Ennis City Hall. Designed by prominent local architect Hix McCanless, this Classical Revival structure was built in 1915 to house city offices and the Ennis police and fire departments. A native of Tennessee, McCanless (1868-1938) was the leading designer and builder in Ennis during the first part of the 20th century, and also served as a surveyor and city engineer. The interior of the city hall building at one time held a large auditorium and still contains the original jail. Its exterior features a pedimented entrance and brick pilasters. #7097
