Construction on the third and present Todd County courthouse was completed in 1976. The building is a one story colonial styling structure with a Doric order portico fronting the brick building. A dome tops the courthouse. The previous courthouse had been retained by the city and was constructed in 1836.
Legend has it that a different brick mason laid each of the four brick walls and whoever finished first and constructed the best wall would receive a prize. It was recorded that a Mr. Shemwell won a coat as a prize for the south wall. Union troops occupied the building during the Civil War and was used as their headquarters. During the renovation of 1871 a cupola was added in the Second Empire style.
