: George and Guy Blair were the stone masons who built the Fairfield County Court House in Lancaster, Ohio. Blackhand sandstone, used for the construction, was quarried in Fairfield County. The building is of Renaissance-Romanesque style with a flat roof, wide bracketed cornice and curved windows with ornamental window hoods. The iron fence surrounding the building was made by the Eagle Machine Company.
The keystone over the entrance to the courthouse is the carved stone face of Henry Ebner, the architect from St Louis. View on Ohio Memory.
