Description:
"A two-story pavilion is fronted by a portico supported by columns with Corinthian capitals. Iron fence segments from Ohio's original statehouse stand before the low side wings that repeat, at the roof-line, the design of the building's two-story main block. These wings house county offices labeled by stone inscriptions over the separate entrances. With its two additions, dating from 1929 and 1961, constructed behind the original building and hidden from view, the courthouse retains the spirit of its original design."
