The House of Poltava province public offices is another pearl of architectural ensemble of the city central part. It should be noted that administrative institutions of the city have always been located in this three-flour brick building.
Side housings which significantly increased the total area of the building were built on in middle 50s of ХІХ century. Before ХХ century the building comprised the most part of province institutions such as province council, public assistance office, treasury chamber where famous Ukrainian writer Panas Myrnyi worked.
With the establishment of Bolshevist regime in Poltava since 1922 there was a Province Executive Board. After the Second World War there were Regional Executive Board and Regional Committee of Communist Party of Ukraine.
One of the distinct features of the building was a clock located on the building fronton and served for citizens of Poltava until the beginning of 40s of ХХ century. However, during the Second World War the building was partially destroyed. Its reconstruction lasted until 1952. Today in place of former clock there is a coat of arms of Poltava of the times of Bohdan Khmelnytskyi: on the shield there is a Cossacks’s bow – symbol of military glory and victory, a bow which stretches down an arrow thus symbolizing protection of peaceful work and life as well as readiness for a battle. In corners of a shield there are hexagonal stars – symbols of Cossacks protected by God. Today in the House of province public offices there is Poltava City Council.
