HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) -- There's a new, old look at City Hall in Huntington that's lighting the way for visitors.

11 new chandeliers are being installed at City Hall and if you were around 102 years ago, the lights might look familiar.

The chandeliers are exact replicas of the first lights installed back in 1915 when city hall was first built.

The privately funded project led by Dr. Joseph Touma involves not only replacing the lighting but also the front windows and restoring the marble floor.

The next phase will be to remove the wallpaper and repaint the interior walls. No completion date has been set for the entire project.
