Callaway County Courthouse
Project type: Civic Facilities, Courthouses (State & Local)View Project in a Separate Window
The courthouse has an art deco design and includes light fixtures and the external façade. The use of a stylized “u” that looks like a “v” was widely panned at the time. In addition to the plaques for the present courthouse, the plaque for the previous courthouse is included. It was the site of the controversial trial of Celia, a slave who killed a sexually abusive master in the 1850’s.
A plaque with project information is attached to the building.
