The Former McLean County Courthouse in Washburn, North Dakota was built in 1905 to replace a courthouse that burned, and was used as a courthouse until 1917, when the new McLean County Courthouse was built.

The building is now used as one of the buildings of the McLean County Historical Society Museums.[2][3]
