1. The Licking County Courthouse Marker
Inscription.  Licking County was created in 1808. This is the fourth courthouse in Licking County; all were located on the public square. The first courthouse was a log building constructed around 1809. Construction of the current Licking County Courthouse began in 1876. In 1879, a fire destroyed upper portions of this building, which were replaced in 1880. Architect Henry E. Myer of Cleveland designed the building in the Second Empire style, which originated in France. It contains significant works of art, including paintings, sculptures, and stained glass in the west courtroom on the second floor. The statues on the outer walls of the courthouse represent the idea of impartial justice.
