“Always crabby workers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

Unfriendly workers who make any interaction unpleasant. Granted, they work with A-holes all day, but you knew that when you took the job. Smile every once in a while!

“Not much to see for historical value”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

THis is listed as a historical site, however there is minimal information inside, its still a functioning facility, but it needs a very thurough cleaning and maybe some information posted about the facilities. I know they do tours for schools, but I have been there for other reasons, and tho it has history, theres not much to the significance of why, other than its old and has been here awhile.

“Amazingly beautiful; it's on the national register of historic landmarks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

From the outside, this courthouse is attractive. The inside will take your breath away. Beatiful stained glass, including a massive rotunda, provides beautiful daytime lighting. The light fixtures, though not necessary on a sunny day, are gorgeous examples of early 20th century glass work. The stonework, the woodwork, the murals--everything fits the design of this Prairie School masterpiece.
