Long Description:
Cedar County Courthouse is the third for the county in the first of this particular site. The courthouse was constructed beginning in 1938 partially with a grant from the Public Works Administration. The courthouse was designed by James D Marshall and M Dwight Brown, an engineer and architect for Kansas City. The architects recommended a monolithic cement building as it would be fireproof. W. F. Edgell and Son from Leavenworth Kansas were contracted to build the courthouse. The cornerstone was not possible poured concrete construction thus items normally placed in a cornerstone placed in a copper box which is placed in the concrete floor on the first level.
