Logan County, named in 1875 to honor pioneer settler James Logan, was divided into two judicial districts in 1901 due to the difficulty and time it took for people in the county’s southern portion to cross the mountains. Paris had jurisdiction over the northern section and Booneville over the southern. This impressive classical red brick courthouse features porticos on three sides, each with four columns and a pediment. An octagonal clock tower with a spire crowns the cruciform building.
