Lucas County Courthouse   Save
Robert Deshon Collection
Description: This image shows the front facade of the Lucas County Courthouse, located at 800 Adams St. This sandstone building has a rusticated base, Roman arches and Corinthian columns. The egg-and-dart trim which recurs throughout the building, on the furniture and architectural elements, is an example of continuity and strict attention to detail. The frogs carved into the stone and in the tile mosaic of the south entranceway are reminders of the courthouse’s site of construction on the former Miami-Erie Canal. View on Ohio Memory.
