Description
Architect: Samuel Sloan

This became the county's second courthouse. The building was constructed in 1861 and originally cost $41,030. After many changes and improvements, county commissioners concluded in 1892 that it had cost the county nearly $100,000.

In April 1854, the commissioners authorized the purchase of a clock. The clock was made in Cazenovia, New York and cost $440.00. The original dials were made of wood, but they were soon replaced with glass, and the belfry lighted at night by gas.

The courthouse served as offices for the county and post office until the late 19th century. The courthouse was demolished in 1969 to make way for the new lowrise facility that currently exists.
