This building is a Sioux City gem The detail of this building inside and out is stunning. The frescoes on the walls are breath taking. And the marble floors and stairs are rich.

The beauty of the outside of the building was matched only by how the city and county officials came together to preserve such a beautiful building.

A gem in the middle of Sioux City. A "Prairie School" architecture masterpiece that is still a functioning courthouse. Built in the years right after World War I, some of the murals commemorate the men and women that served and died during the conflict. A...More
