Treasurer's Office

We are very proud of our courthouse, one of the most beautiful in the state of Indiana. Construction began in 1927 and was completed in 1929, featuring limestone and marble. Courtrooms were remodeled in 1985. Beautifully maintained, the courthouse is located just two blocks north of Main St. and two blocks west of Highway 57.
