Seat of Carroll County 1858

The original Carroll County courthouse was erected on the Northwest corner of the block with land donated by the mill company, Emmert, Halderman and Co. Completed in 1843, this small two story stone building was used as a church, courthouse, town hall and public meeting house. It was quickly outgrown and replaced with a larger courthouse.
