*County Courthouse:* Jasper County Courthouse
Location:Carthage, Missouri
Architect:Max A. Orlopp Jr.
Year Completed: 1895



It was built to replace the original Jasper County Courthouse destroyed in the Battle of Carthage during the Civil War.

It is a Romanesque Revival style building that rises 133 feet and is also my favorite building.

An interesting factoid is that it is the 2nd most photographed building in all of Missouri behind the St. Louis Arch.
