Notes
Survey number HABS IA-83
Significance: The courthouse is sited in the middle of the town square, as is often found in this portion of the midwest. The building, however, is unusual in its stone construction and in the relatively simple interpretation of the classic-inspired version of the Victorian idiom. The architect was A.H. Piquenard, who with John C. Cochrane, was the architect of the state capitol in Des Moines.
