Audrain County Courthouse History

Audrain County Courthouse In Mexico, MO

When Audrain County organized in December 1836, officials selected Mexico as the county seat. Two months later, construction started, one level,18 by 36 feet,  divided into two rooms, one 22 feet long, a brick fireplace, two exterior doors, four windows, and roof tiles — the building completed on July 10, 1837.

Officials ordered the first building sold while the second built. The building was still standing and used as a bakery and confectionery.

In November 1838 construction began on the second Courthouse, a two-story building, William White was the superintendent, later replaced by M. Walton, who completed the work in November 1840. 

The courtroom was on the first floor; on the second floor, it had three rooms for offices that sometimes were rented for hotel rooms and used for other purposes — lots sold by the county provided enough money to cover construction costs. During the Civil War, it was used as a barracks and sustained extensive damage. Over the next four years, the county had no official courthouse.

In May 1868, before deciding on plans of the new Courthouse, County officials went to examine the Monroe County Courthouse. Impressed with what they saw, they chose a similar design for Audrain County.

The court assigned $ 50,000 and appointed Superintendent John M. Gordon, who was later replaced by E.P. Cunningham. The contractor for the project was Terrell and Hays. Construction began in 1868 and completed in 1869. The costs amounted to about $ 43,000. It was a two-story building, measuring 102 by 60 feet at the base and 40 feet tall. It contained ten rooms.

In 1938 an engineer spoke to the civic club in Mexico and tried to persuade them to take advantage of the government's offer to match 45 percent of the costs of the Courthouse, accompanying him was an architect who presented a drawing of a traditional design.

No action was taken until 1947 when the officials considered an alternate design. The county had received $ 500,000 in bonds, but all bids exceeded the appropriation, leaving the project abandoned.

Later, the officials once again reviewed the plans. Making cost-cutting modifications, Again, the court solicited bids; These bids came within an acceptable range.

In May 1950, John Epple was contracted to build the Courthouse for  $527,300. Construction completed in the fall of 1951 and the court dedicated it on October 9 of that year.
