Description

“On July 12, 1938, the people voted to approve an increase in ad valorem taxation to 5 mills for the purpose of erecting a new County Courthouse with a new County Jail.  The Board of Commissioners subsequently entered into contract with an architect, Jos. I. Davis, to submit plans to the Federal Government through the Works Progress Administration of Oklahoma for the construction of the Courthouse.  By December of that year, all protesters to the building of the new Courthouse and Jail had been satisfied.  The Commissioners then began receiving bids for the various components of the Courthouse and Jail—from sand and gravel to iron works and marble, to benches for the District Courtroom seating.  In less than two years the building was complete.  On March 4, 1940, the W.P.A. certified that the building was ready for occupancy.”   (http://ok.gov/wagonercounty)
