. Madison County Courthouse is a historic courthouse located at Fredericktown, Madison County, Missouri. It was designed by architect Theodore Link and built in 1900. It is a two-story, rectangular, eclectic Late Victorian style brick and granite building with an attic and full basement. It features a square, five-story tower with a steep pyramidal roof and finial. (Submitted on July 4, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.) 

2. Madison County Court House. (This link presents historic photos and documents for both the 1822 and 1899 [this one] courthouses.) Madison County held its first Circuit Court meetings in homes. The County Court organized in 1821, and it too met in homes until 1822. Madison County's first courthouse was a brick structure, built of hand made bricks from the area in 1822; it continued in use until J. F. Boggs was paid $25 for tearing it down in 1899 to make way for the new courthouse. (Submitted on July 4, 2018, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
