The Martin County Courthouse is located at 201 Lake Avenue Fairmont, Martin County in the U.S. state of Minnesota. It is a Bedford limestone Beaux Arts building featuring a high copper dome with four clock faces. The first floor was made out of Michigan sandstone. The arched entrance is flanked by polished double Corinthian order columns and topped by a pediment. The building was designed by Charles E. Bell and built by J.B. Nelson for $125,000 in 1907. Interior murals of figures representing peace, war, inspiration, genius, sentence, and execution were painted by Franz E. Rohrbeck of Milwaukee. Interior finishing includes marble countertops, metalwork, and stained glass.[3] The building is connected to the Martin County security building by skyway.
