The Southeast Museum, formerly the Southeast Town Hall, is typical of municipal architecture of the 1890’s. Arched windows, ornate classical columns and a balustrade over a substantial entrance reflect a revival of the Baroque and monumental elements. The Arabesque arches over the dormers are a peculiar touch and echo the later Nineteenth Century’s interest in Eastern and near-Eastern exotica.
