More Info
  • Built in 1891 at the cost of $60,000, the Jefferson County Courthouse is constructed of limestone. Arthur and Ferdinand Bower, stonecutters who settled here from England, cut the stones by hand. The south, east and west sides of the building are graced with statues depicting Justice, Law and Freedom.

    The antiquity of the Jefferson County Courthouse is preserved, as evidenced by the ornate wrought-iron seats in the courtroom, reminiscent of the Old West. The clock for the tower was installed in July of 1910 at the cost of $1,442.50. The dial is five feet in diameter and the bell, affectionately called “Little Ben”, weighs 1,000 pounds, and even today tolls every hour.
