City Market House

Present-Day - Harding Square

The town market building was constructed in 1893 for $5,610. The ground floor housed booths for the selling of fish, meats, and produce. The Washington Light Infantry was housed on the upper floor.

 The architect for the building was Charles E. Hartge (September 1, 1865-October 25, 1918). Hartge designed many churches, schools, and other structures in central and eastern North Carolina around the turn of the 20th Century. In Washington, Hartge's work may have included:

·   The Atlantic Coastline terminal on Gladden Street.

·   The remodeling of St. Peter's Episcopal Church.

·   The numerous brick commercial buildings were erected here after a downtown fire in 1900.

His most imposing works in Washington is the First Methodist Church.
