Faits

  • The exterior is profusely ornamented with sculpture; the interior is finished in a variety of woods, marbles, tiles, and mosaics.
  • The height of the courthouse's tower is 247 feet.
  • The Wayne County Building is English Baroque in style, featuring a tall, four-tiered, hipped-roof central tower balanced by end pavilions.
  • A renovation was carried out in 1986 by Quinn Evans Architects and Smith, Hinchman and Grylls Associates.
  • The tower was originally 227' - 8 1/2" tall. The copper dome and spire were redone in the 1960s bringing its height to what it is today.
  • It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
  • Built with buff Berea Sandstone, the facade features a rusticated basement story and a balustrade between the third and fourth stories. At the main entrance, a broad flight of stairs leads up to a two-story Corinthian column portico.
  • The courthouse is faced in granite and sandstone with copper accents.
  • The Wayne County offices moved to the Guardian Building in 2009. The building is currently commercial office space.
  • Above the portico are two bronze sculpture groups entitled “Progress” by J. Massey Rhind of New York City. At the base of the tower are four bronze figures representing Law, Commerce, Agriculture and Mechanics.
  • The pediment above the main entrance features a carved stone relief by Edward Wagner showing Anthony Wayne conferring with Native Americans.
