Description:
"The eclectic style of the courthouse is primarily the result of its ongoing modifications. The present exterior was erected around an earlier 1870 structure. In 1895, one of the two original corner towers was removed, while the remaining one, with four trumpet-blowing angels, was extended." Former U.S. President, William McKinley, once practiced law in this courthouse.
