Willard, Solomon (1783–1861). American architect. Influenced by the work of Latrobe. Willard brought the Greek Revival to Boston. He designed the United States Branch Bank, Boston (1822–4), the Norfolk County Court House, Dedham (1824–6), and the Suffolk County Court House, Boston (1835), all in Greek Doric, and all in MA. He was also responsible for the Town Hall, Quincy, MA (1844). From 1824 to 1842 he concerned himself with the Bunker Hill Monument, Charlestown, MA, a vast obelisk with an Egyptian Revival base: he published Plans and Sections of the Obelisk on Bunker's Hill in 1843.
