The robust Queen Anne office and residence fronting the sturdy jail wing is the lone survivor of Luce County's nineteenth-century courthouse complex. Clad in a rich texture of brown Marquette and red Jacobsville sandstone, pressed brick, and shingles, the gabled sheriff's residence displays horseshoe and round arches, recessed entrances, and a bell roof corner tower. The fountain from which emerges a crane was moved from the courthouse to the museum grounds and fenced in wrought iron.
