One of thirteen county courthouses in North Dakota designed by the St. Paul, Minnesota, architectural firm of Buechner and Orth between 1905 and 1919. Built of brown brick over a white stone foundation, the building features a tall domed tower with bull's-eye windows at the cardinal directions and capped with a belvedere and knob finial. Each of the eight tower angles is emphasized by a stone Corinthian column, and each plane contains a tall keystone arch window. The arch pattern is carried through the center bay of the front facade, but all other openings are linteled. Paired pilasters separate second story windows, and the front and rear facades are enriched with garlands, festoons, and mouldings of limestone. The interior features an operational skylight, well-preserved murals, and scallop headed niches in the rotunda. The second floor courtroom has richly stenciled coffered ceiling and massive oak balustrade. The building retains complete exterior integrity, and the painting over of stencils on the first and second floor walls in the early 1950's has been the only major interior alteration.
