The exterior is profusely ornamented with sculpture; the interior is finished in a variety of woods, marbles, tiles, and mosaics.
The height of the courthouse's tower is 247 feet.
The Wayne County Building is English Baroque in style, featuring a tall, four-tiered, hipped-roof central tower balanced by end pavilions.
A renovation was carried out in 1986 by Quinn Evans Architects and Smith, Hinchman and Grylls Associates.
The tower was originally 227' - 8 1/2" tall. The copper dome and spire were redone in the 1960s bringing its height to what it is today.
It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
Built with buff Berea Sandstone, the facade features a rusticated basement story and a balustrade between the third and fourth stories. At the main entrance, a broad flight of stairs leads up to a two-story Corinthian column portico.
Despite most Wayne County government offices having vacated this building for the modern Coleman A. Young Municipal Center a block west, the office of the executive of Wayne County is still located here.
The courthouse is faced in granite and sandstone with copper accents.
