1. Webster County Courthouse (Wikipedia). Unlike Iowa's other Beaux Arts courthouses, the long axis of the building is perpendicular to the main facade. The interior features a rectangular light court that is covered with a white glass barrel-vaulted skylight. A marble staircase with brass balustrade and handrails is located in the light court. The perimeter of the court is set off by column screens with columns in the Corinthian and Ionic orders. (Submitted on December 10, 2020, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
