: The Highland County Courthouse is said to be the oldest Ohio structure that has been continually used as a courthouse. Completed in 1835 by architect Pleasant Arthur, the building combines Federal and Greek Revival architectural elements with its Federal fanlight and Greek entablature and columns. The blending of architectural styles is common in Ohio county courthouses as a result of the self education of local contractors in stylish European designs. These are the front and side facades of the building. View on Ohio Memory.
