“It’s cool to be part of this building’s history.  We are just temporary but this building will be here long after we are gone. Right?”

The courthouse located near 6th and Douglas is considered one of the top Prairie School architectural buildings in the country.

It was designed by William Steele who studied under Louis Sullivan in Chicago.  A 100th anniversary celebration took place last year.
