Built: 1954 – 1955
Architect: Jyring and Jurenes of Hibbing

Description: The building faces north and is a two story contemporary style structure. The building is located on spacious grounds. The exterior walls are Indiana limestone with red colored marble on the massive interior wall between the courtrooms. The long hallway connecting the two ends of the building takes advantage of the natural light transmitted through unique domes spaced along its length. A glass panel extends through the entire height at one end of the long face of the building. The south end of the building is adorned with long columns that seem to glow at night when lighted.
See: The architect Jyring and Jurenes of Hibbing also designed the courthouse in Itasca County.
