Mahnomen County Courthouse

311 N. Main Street
Mahnomen , MN 56557
(218) 935-2251

In November 1908, about two years after Mahnomen County was officially established, the county commisioners agreed to issue 10 $1,000 20-year bonds to finance a courthouse.  F.W. Kenney of Kenney & Halden of Minneapolis designed the courthouse, which was built by Carl Nelson of Mahnomen in 1910 at a cost of $9,763.

The building is a neo-classic, two-story brick building trimmed with limestone.  The front side is three bays wide.  The center forms a pavilion set out by brick pilasters that rise to a classic pediment.  A cornice defines the top of the second story with a plain parapet rising above it.

In 1975, Mahnomen County remodeled and built an $808,000 addition to the courthouse.  The original three arched windows on the second floor have been eliminated.
