100th Anniversary

The Woodbury County Courthouse celebrated its 100th anniversary in May 2018. Find virtual tours, videos, fun facts, and more about the iconic courthouse building.

"Serene, almost impudent, it stands there. You feel a sense of illusion about its reality which leaves you presently to be followed by a feeling that building itself is the only reality and its surroundings are the phantoms.... The effect upon entering the rotunda, no matter how disagreeable the weather outdoors, is that of a delightful, radiant warmth. This is like entering a spacious living room with a hospitable fire on the hearth."

- The Western Architect, 1921
