Gasconade County Courthouse

Historical Place
Dedicated on July 18, 1898, the Gasconade County Courthouse is thought to be one of the few courthouses in the United States built entirely with private funds. Hermann businessman, Charles Eitzen, bequeathed $50,000 to Gasconade County for construction and furnishing of a new courthouse. A statue of Eitzen is on display on the front lawn. Also on display on the grounds is the cannon used to defend Hermann in 1864 during the Civil War.  Interior murals by area artists depicting the history of Gasconade County were added in 1998. Open to the public during normal business hours.
