Rio Blanco County Courthouse

-A A +A
1933. Main to Park sts. between 5th and 6th sts.

One of the least pretentious and most pleasing Colorado courthouses, this horizontal, beige sandstone structure of two and one-half stories received closely matched additions in the 1950s. Many original fixtures survive, including the stainless steel lanterns on pilasters flanking the stepped entry pavilion.
