Description:
This was built shortly after the old county courthouse and the two buildings were used together for almost a century. When the county outgrew both of these courthouses, the newer building was torn down and replaced with Courthouse Square, an urban plaza. The newer courthouse had been harshly criticized for lacking a pure architectural style. The other building was preserved due to its design and historical significance.
