  Miami County Courthouse
by Basaic

Peru is a decent sized town of over 13,000 located in North Central Indiana due north of Indianapolis. Miami County was organized in 1834. The first county seat was Miamisport but Peru was designated the county seat in 1843. The first courthouse burned down and was replaced by this impressive one, which was built using the Beaux Arts Classic style of architecture. Musical playwright Cole Porter was born here.
