Description:
This courthouse was designed at the same time as the Miami County Courthouse from 1885-1888 by architect Joseph W. Yost. Although the two are similar in size, shape and basic features, the Belmont County Courthouse appears modest in comparison to the Miami courthouse. In 1993 it was chemically power washed to reveal a clean and impressive stone facade.
