Architect: Hulsey & Moses
Category: courthouse
Thematic Nomination: Historic County Courthouses of Kansas

Erected 1884, this courthouse is one of the few existing examples that date to this distinct period in the evolution of courthouse design in Kansas. In addition to its hipped roof, the use of locally quarried limestone enhances the building’s Italianate design. The property’s association with the evolution of Kansas county courthouses and their design, guides its period of significance, which begins with its construction in 1884 and continues to 1929 with the last historically-significant addition. This Courthouse is a modest example of a late nineteenth and early twentieth century courthouse plan in Kansas that was designed by a local citizen’s committee and constructed by Manhattan contractor Hulsey and Moses.
