Description

The Works Progress Administration renovated the Medina County Courthouse between 1938-1940.

Excerpt from the historical market installed at the Medina County Courthouse:

“Between 1939 and 1942, changes to the courthouse were made, including the addition of two two-story wings. Stone for the new wings was secured again from limestone deposits on the Decker Ranch.

The classical revival courthouse exhibits some influences of the Italianate style. Prominent features include the rusticated stone walls, classical portico over the entryway, a broken triangular pediment, and stone hood molds with incised eastlake designs.”
