: The Van Wert County Courthouse dominates Van Wert's business district with its impressive facade composed of galvanized iron with pressed-zinc trimmings. Because the walls are made of pressed brick, the building is fireproof. Above the entrance is an 8 foot tall statue of Justice. It represents Second Empire style architecture. This image shows the building's front facade. View on Ohio Memory.
