The Perkins County Courthouse, located on Lincoln St. in Grant, is the county courthouse of Perkins County, Nebraska. Built in 1926-27, the courthouse is the third used by Perkins County. Architect J.F. Reynolds designed the courthouse in the County Citadel style, a type of courthouse design heavily influenced by Classical Revival architecture. The courthouse is built with rusticated brick and features a recessed main entrance, massive Ionic columns above the entrance, and a parapet with a carved eagle and decorative panels on the front side.[2]

The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places on July 5, 1990.[1]
