“Amazing Richardson Romanesque Courthouse”

Reviewed 31 December 2015

This great old building was built in 1889 and is either the second or third oldest courthouse in Minnesota. It's the only courthouse I know that has lots of stained glass windows throughout. (I guess that's because Winona, Minnesota, is known as the stained glass capital of the world with nearly a dozen companies in town specializing in making or repairing stained glass all over the world.) This courthouse has lots of neat architectural fixtures on the outside of the building, beautiful woodwork throughout and some neat "hidden" stairways. I was fortunate to get a tour that included the judge's back stairs, the vaults, and the top of the tower which is abandoned and empty except for a few dead birds.

To see it from outside is amazing-and to go inside is even more amazing-the structure and upkeep is very nicely preserved. Glad my tax dollars show this beauty off :-)

...and look upward. It's beautiful, and just 2 blocks from the Winona County Historical Society Museum that puts the building in its historical perspective with the rest of the archtectural marvels of this rivertown.

The architecture of the building is neat to see and ponder over. It is impressive in its own rights but otherwise, just another building.
