Built in 1881 by famous American architect Henry Hobson Richardson, the Thomas Crane Public Library serves the people of Quincy, Massachusetts. Like Richardson’s other works, it features his Richardsonian Romanesque styling of stone building material, large archways, towers, and a clay roof. The inside of the library was designed by Richardson too and is constructed from beautiful hard wood floor and paneling. This creates a warm and inviting interior. The library was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1987. It is one of the many libraries in the United States I am looking forward to visiting one day.
