Facts

  • The height of 111 feet includes the nine-foot pressed zinc statue atop the courthouse named "Lady Justice."
  • The courthouse served as the seat of government until 1976, when a new courthouse and country building were constructed. The structure now serves as a museum.
  • The building suffered a devastating fire on July 4, 1894, which destroyed the second floor, and caused the bell in the tower and the statue of Lady Justice to crash down to the first floor. The building was meticulously restored to its original state one year later.
  • This Beaux-Arts styled building is faced in brick and sandstone.
