The current downtown courthouse was built in stages between 1911 and 1914 as the seat of county government, and 1991 study of the courthouse had this to say about the structure (pdf 218 KB). The commitment to provide a safe and functional central courthouse led to decision to move forward with the plans for building a new county courthouse.
