Platte County Courthouse



Read All About It:

Constructed in 1917, the two-story, brick and stone masonry courthouse is eligible because it represents the early twentieth-century political growth of Platte County, which was created in 1911. The courthouse is also an outstanding example of early twentieth-century Neo-Classical Revival architecture in a public building. The functions for the Platte County Courthouse have remained the same for the past ninety years, documenting the activities of its citizens, establishing a permanent record of births and deaths, marriages, divorces and adoptions, real estate and vehicle records, probate and court records, election and business conducted by county commissions. As such, the courthouse acts as an archive for the history of the Platte County and represents a symbol of the sense of community and permanence for it citizens. The building also serves as an important gathering place for the numerous public activities required of its citizens.
