Description: This image shows the Marion County Courthouse in Marion, Ohio. Located at the heart of the city of Marion, it is a sister of the courthouses that stand in Washington Court House in Fayette County, Ohio, and Charlotte, Eaton County, Michigan. All three were designed by architect David W. Gibbs. A tower rises from the center of the building supporting the four faced clock and a dome capped with a statue of Justice. The statue was taken down during renovations, repaired and cleaned and then lifted to its spot by helicopter. Urns surmount the corners surrounding the base of the tower. The facade has several portholes with heads staring out. Four represent the race of man, A Native American chief, an Asian, an African-American, and a Caucasian woman. Also included are pioneers and the age cycle of mankind, going from young to old. View on Ohio Memory.
