A long, wide concrete staircase leads to the Beaux-Arts classical courthouse, which has a massive pedimented portico supported by six Corinthian columns, with the entablature continuing around the building, above which is a parapet. Corinthian pilasters separate bays on side-elevation projections. The first-floor windows on the front elevation feature stone pedimented caps, contrasting slightly with the buff-colored brick of the walls and pilasters. Cream-colored terra-cotta details include eagles above the doors on the main and north entries. The interior of the building is the most monumental of DeLongchamps's commissions in Nevada, featuring a sweeping marble staircase and a two-story atrium with Ionic columns and a leaded glass ceiling. In 1976 the county constructed a passageway linking the courthouse with a newer county office building to the rear.
