Routt County Courthouse

-A A +A
1923, Fuller and Fuller. 1982, annex, Lacey-Eidem and Associates. 522 Lincoln Ave.
  • (Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

In the Beaux-Arts tradition, this symmetrical, rectangular-plan building of yellow wirecut brick wears Neoclassical trim of Emerald Mountain sandstone and terracotta. The little-altered interior holds museum cases and photographs of the county's numerous pioneer Schoolhouses. The original courthouse, at 928 Lincoln Avenue, began life as a rather plain two-story red brick commercial building, a use to which it has been returned.
