Because of their national architectural and historical significance, both the Old Court House and the Sheriff's House & Jail were designated for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. Today the stately complex is a proud landmark known throughout the area, restored and revived for you and your family and friends' enjoyment. Much of its historic space is now occupied by the Old Court House Art Center's unique galleries. Throughout the three floors of the building complex you can still see the original pressed tin ceilings ... impenetrable jail ceils... massive iron vault doors that are beautifully decorated with hand-painted murals and floral motifs... old election tallies recorded and preserved on a giant chalkboard... beautiful arched doorways and handsome moldings... and an elegant winding stairway leading to the magnificent Grand Court Room (which is available for distinctive parties, weddings and other activities). Artists' studios occupy the south wing, formerly the jury sleeping rooms.
