Gem County Courthouse – Emmett ID

Description

This art deco courthouse in Gem county Idaho was built by the PWA in 1938-39. Architect Frank Hummel designed the building.

A National Register of Historic Places report describes the courthouse design: “The Gem and Washington county buildings use the bas relief ornament typical of Art Deco in a highly classical fashion. In them the vertical pier of Art Deco becomes a shallow pilaster with a stylized capital.”
