Major County Courthouse is a historic courthouse in Fairview, Oklahoma. It was built in 1928 and designed by Tonini and Bramblet, who also designed several other courthouses in Oklahoma. The four-story stone building features Tuscan columns and pilasters spanning the second and third floors. The columns are topped by a frieze reading "MAJOR COUNTY COURT HOUSE", and the building is topped by a projecting cornice and a parapet. The building's front entrance is in a Roman arch; the double doors have glass panels and a fanlight.[2]

The courthouse was added to the National Register of Historic Places on August 23, 1984.[1]
