This unassuming brick courthouse was originally a small commercial storefront building, which is still detectable in the stone trim between the brick at the courthouse’s southwest corner. In 1924, a piecemeal addition, based on a design by Van Horn and Ritterbush, gave the courthouse a symmetrical U shape. In 1937 the courtyard in the building’s center was filled in, which gave the courthouse the slightly more unified appearance it has today. A related, noteworthy commercial block (c. 1905) with similar modest architectural pretentions is at 310 Main Avenue.
