Champaign County Courthouse
101 E. Main Street
Champaign County built a new courthouse — its fifth — in 1900 and hired twenty-seven year-old Joseph Royer to design the new building. Completed for $150,000, it was done in the Richardsonian Romanesque style that was popular for public buildings at the time. Hallmarks of the style include the rusticated red sandstone and mottled brick exterior, the tall clock tower, and the arched windows. The clock tower and Seth Thomas clock works were restored in recent years.
