The Marion County Courthouse (1897-1900) is a significant example of Beaux Arts Classicism, and is the finest representation of the style found among all courthouses in the state.
Major elements of the courthouse are seen in the coupled columns on the dome, monumental flights of steps, arched pediment and lintel openings and overall elaborate symmetry. Pediments depict relief sculptures of local historical, social and industrial conditions.
We believe History Can be fun!
