The Kinley Town Hall is a Lovian town hall in Kinley, Seven. It is one of the most extraordinary buildings in the country. The Seven Court House is located across the street. Louis Sullivan[1], the architect of the building designed a lot of the Chicago skyscrapers, designed and built the monument in 1925.

The building features some remarkable artefacts surprinsingly incorporated by the architect. The renaissance tiles covering the ground floor of the building have been recovered from a 15th century Italian palace in Florence. The office of the mayor Patrick McKinley features a mantle piece from Andrea Palladio, the famous italian architect who designed the Villa Almerico-Capra.
