Saguache County Courthouse

-A A +A
1910, John J. Huddart. 501 4th St. (southwest corner of Christy Ave.)

This design, like John Huddart's other Colorado courthouses, aims for a functional interior and an impressive exterior. The two-story, vernacular Neoclassical structure has a raised basement and dormered attic for extra space. Beige brick walls with limestone trim rise to a standard dentiled cornice and a pediment over the entry.
