Built in 1894-95, this Romanesque Revival building is constructed of Carthage stone; its turrets, towers and arches evoke a feel of a medieval castle looming over the city.

Inside you’ll find, among other items: a wrought-iron cage elevator still operates; a display representing the history of Route 66; an array of military artifacts and mining specimens; and “Forged in Fire,” a mural by Lowell Davis, that portrays the history of Jasper County.

The Jasper County Courthouse is said to be the second-most-photographed building in the state of Missouri. Closed state and national holidays.
