County's first courthouse served until the current building
was completed in 1904. The new courthouse was built with
arches over doors and windows, and an ornate clock tower. In
1958, the courthouse's roof and tower were destroyed by a
fire. Subsequently, much of the damage was repaired --
though the courthouse no longer had its distinctive tower
and roof. In 1989, as part of an effort to restore the
courthouse to its pre-1958 appearance, a new tower (although
not as tall as the original) and roof were built. Also in
1989, a rear addition to the courthouse was constructed.
