The Polk County Courthouse is listed on the National Historic Register. It is a majestic, brick building in the Greek Revivalist style, located in the heart of downtown Columbus. The Courthouse was built between 1857 and 1859 and has been in continuous use since that time.
A Civil War Trail Marker describing events during Stoneman’s Raid in 1865 stands outside the Courthouse. When you visit, be sure to experience this important part of Polk County’s rich history and heritage.
The Courthouse and Civil War Trail Marker are located on the corner of Highway 108 and Courthouse St.
