Peoria’s red sandstone, German Renaissance building is in the final four. It’s now head-to-head against Pasadena, Ca.’s city hall building, a Spanish Colonial domed structure. 

At last check, Peoria’s city hall was down by about 1,000 votes. Residents can vote in the City Hall bracket competition here.
