Thematic Nomination: Historic County Courthouses of Kansas

Constructed in 1921-1924, the Rooks County Courthouse is a four-story, brick building with a Bedford limestone veneer and detailing. A dentil cornice accents its flat roof, and Ionic columns, and pilasters define the primary entrance. Designed by architect Frank C. Squires and constructed by Cuthbert and Sons, both of Topeka, it is an example of the Classical Revival-style and replaces an earlier Italianate courthouse (1881). It was nominated as part of the "Historic County Courthouses of Kansas" multiple property listing for its association with local politics and government and for its architecture.
