From state, to county, to municipal politics, civic duty and civic mindedness are interwoven into the fabric of Trenton. Within the city each level of government is housed in its own one-of-a-kind building with its own unique history. Trenton’s City Hall on State Street, housing the Mayor’s offices and City Council chambers, was financed by Roeblings and built after the turn of the last century of white marble inside and out, a commanding Renaissance style structure. A monumental mural of Trenton’s Roebling Wire Works and Maddock Pottery factories by painter Everett Shinn decorates city Council Chambers. The Mercer County Executive and Board of Chosen Freeholders offices are currently housed in the former headquarters of the John A. Roebling’s Sons Company on South Broad Street. A small Roebling wire suspension bridge – originally used for testing – can today be seen high up connecting two of the county office buildings. New Jersey’s Governor’s offices and the State Legislature are housed in the historic State House on State Street, dating back to 1792, the second oldest state capital building in continuous use in the country.
