Inscription. In 1903, Senator Warren Williams introduced a bill allowing the county seat to be moved from Stillwater to Fallon. The courthouse was constructed at its present location that same year. The wooden-framed structure of Neo-Classical design was conceived by Reno architect Ben Leon and constructed by W.B. Wyrick of Fallon. In 2001, the courthouse went through a major renovation. It remains the only wooden-framed courthouse in the state.
