Jasper County Courthouse


Built in 1894-5, this Romanesque Revival building is constructed of Carthage stone and listed on the National Regiser of Historic Places. Its turrets, towers, and arches evoke a feel of a medieval castle looming over the city below. Inside a wrought-iron cage elevator still operates and an array of military artifacts and mining specimens are displayed along with the “”Forged in Fire”” mural by Lowell Davis that portrays the history of Jasper County. A display representing the history of Route 66 was added in 2009. The Jasper County Courthouse is said to be the second most photographed building in the state of Missouri.
