Long Description:
The courthouse was designed by Henry H. Wright, architect, and cornerstone was laid July 4, 1858. The building was built by George F. Evans and William F. Mitchell and completed and ready for use in October 1860. The cost of the building was $14,000. The red brick building trimmed with white stone originally measured 50 by 65 feet. An addition was added to the west portion of the building in 1964.
