The rotunda murals are among Allen County Courthouse’s many fine works of art. Charles Holloway was commissioned to paint the murals, following his exhibit in the Columbian Exposition World’s Fair in Chicago Illinois in 1893. The murals depict the role of government in our daily lives. Restored in 1995-2002, Smithsonian’s Richard Murray noted that the murals were leading examples of Progressive Era public art of high political and cultural significance.

The Circuit Courtroom is adorned with beautiful scagliola walls; quarter-sawn oak judge’s bench and council tables; and most notably murals by Mr. Carl Gutherz, a famous artist who did most of the mural decoration in the Library of Congress.

Hey there, history fans! Our team is incredibly proud of the Allen County Courthouse and excited to share its historical significance and beauty with you through our refreshed social channels. Let’s get started with this magnificent stained-glass dome that sits 110 feet in the air. Each window panel is 10 feet in height and weighs approximately 200 pounds. It is naturally back-lit by the sun that shines through the glass block windows in the tower of the upper courthouse. Stunning!

Allen County Courthouse Preservation Trust

At the Allen County Courthouse Preservation Trust, our mission is to assure that our beloved courthouse remains an active and appealing community resource and national historic destination for generations to come.

Completed in 1902, the Allen County Courthouse was a gift to future generations from visionary leaders who wished to express in art and architecture the dignity of the government, the supremacy of the people and the grandeur of the law. This magnificent building is recognized as a National Historic Landmark for its original murals and sculptures, scagliola faux marbling, unique tile floor designs and abundant stained glass.

Sadly, the years took their toll on the Courthouse. In 1994, the Allen County Courthouse Preservation Trust, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, was formed and began the task of restoring all of its artistic elements. While much has been done, there are still many more projects planned in the restoration effort. Preservation of the Courthouse continues, and it is the goal of the Courthouse Preservation Trust to provide this historic treasure with the upkeep it deserves.

This busy landmark is available for walking tours and special events. Check out our website to learn more!
