1. Maricopa County Courthouse Marker
Inscription. The Maricopa County Courthouse was originally built in 1928-1929 by both Maricopa County and the City of Phoenix. The County Courthouse portion of the building was designed by a Louisiana architect. Edward F. Neild. The City chose the Phoenix firm of Lescher and Mahoney to construct a city hall. Although unified in its earlier appearance, the building was designed as two independent buildings in the Neo-Classical and Spanish Colonial Revival styles. The exterior is constructed of terra cotta and poured concrete with bronze and polished granite details and red clay roofing tiles. The Maricopa County Courthouse reflects the growth of the State of Arizona and the City of Phoenix during the decades prior to World War II.
