Description:
The Clermont County courthouse was built from 1935-1936 by architects Hunt and Allan with the aid of the Works Progress Administration. The red brick and limestone facade, accentuated with large windows in the front that light the courtroom, is surmounted by a wide, limestone entablature, which creates an impressive county building for local citizens. An addition was dedicated in 1998 after the extra space became necessary with the rapid growth of the county's population. The white building behind the courthouse currently houses the Adult Probation department.
