: This image shows the front entrance and clock tower of the Ross County Courthouse. This building was intended to resemble the county’s previous 1801 courthouse, that had served as both county courthouse and statehouse. It was destroyed in 1852 to make room for the present building, which has one story wings on either side of the two story central structure. This is a unique building, reflecting trends in antebellum East Coast architecture. Additions were made to the building in 1929 and 1961. View on Ohio Memory.
