Mineral County Courthouse is a historic courthouse located at Keyser, Mineral County, West Virginia. It was built in 1868 and expanded or remodeled in 1894 and 1938-1941. The original section of the courthouse is a 2 1/2 story, brick building. The 1894 modifications are in the Romanesque Revival style. It is a three-story section constructed of brick and rusticated stone, with a low-pitched hipped roof. It features a centered tower topped with a pyramidal roof. The side and rear, two-story additions were constructed in 1938 and 1941 to provide additional county office space. U.S. Senator and Vice Presidential candidate Henry G. Davis donated land for the courthouse square.[2]
