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.
