“Beautiful building in the center of town!”

Monroe County Courthouse
Reviewed October 27, 2017

This iconic courthouse in the center of town is right in the town square. Beautiful architecture inside and out. Love the fish weathervane which is a town symbol. Marks the center of town with its dome and special lights at the holidays!

The history of the Monroe County Courthouse is worth examining, as are the changes that arose in its design and architecture. Even in the last 50 years, it has changed considerably, with the second floor removed and the atrium of the early design re-established.

We stopped in the court house while touring around the square area. The court house is beautiful--murals, stained glass dome, interesting history markers etc. It's still very much a working county building which adds to it's charm. I would definitely suggest taking some time to explore the courthouse (take the elevator to 3rd level for best viewing) and park around it.

By and far the best time to visit is during the holidays. From the giant tree in the rotunda to the strings of lights that stretch from the roof to the surrounding buildings defiantly worth a visit.

Provides a beautiful setting in downtown Bloomington. Excellent Christmas light display. Useful for local business but also acquaints a visitor with the downtown experience.
