As early as 1919 citizens realized the growing population required a bigger building, however it was not till 1938 that the remodeled structure gave way to a brand-new courthouse. Callaway began seriously considering a brand-new courthouse, in 1938 once they learned federal funds would be offered.
The court toured courthouses in other counties and talked with several state companies who prepared the plans for a three-story building with a jail. Bonds were voted for $125,000 on June 1938. Federal contribution was $102,273, and final figures ran on the brink of $250,000. J. E. Hathman contracted and engineered the 134-by-80-foot, three-story, brick, and stone structure, with the principal entrance facing north. The court accepted the finished building in December 1939. Dedication of the courthouse that still houses county officials took place on March 18, 1940.
