Abstract: Purpose The purpose of the study is to discuss the Government houses erected in the latter Ottoman period, and the administrative centers erected in time by other public buildings located around over the changes they made to  the urban space and in particular over the Giresun province  periodical as a necessity and symbol of administrative modernization. Design/Methodology/Approach Giresun's modernization experience on the periphery was conducted by a periodic reading. The Late Ottoman Period is defined as the ‘First Steps of Modernization (the end of the 19th century)’; the first years of the Republic as the ‘Fundamental Modernization (the early 20th century)’; today is defined as ‘New Searches / Tendencies in Modernization (late 20th-21st century)’. The method of the study was determined by the collection of verbal, written, and visual data Type the design/methodology/approach of the paper here.Findings Buildings that were built, demolished, or changed their function in each period in the context of their own historical conditions, are part of the city's modernization process.  Accordingly, the administrative center, which was erected during the Ottoman period, continued its functional and symbolic meaning for many years, but has recently started to lose this feature and its structural quality and meaning.Research Limitations/Implications Giresun is placed in the center of the study as a township in the Trabzon province in the late Ottoman period, and as a small port city in the Republican Age. The study focuses on the period from the late period of the Ottoman period to the present.Originality/Value Today, the building, which has begun to lose its effect, despite its urban, architectural, and symbolic value, should be evaluated in a way that respects the public interest and should continue to preserve its rightful value as an important part of the urban memory. This study is unique with contribution to  studies related to a city that has  not been placed in many  urban, architectural, and historical studies and with its potential to increase sensitivity to periodical buildings in the city as one of the parts that complement the city's culture and identity.
