  Franklin County courthouse
by mrclay2000

One of the most imaginative in the entire state, this George Washburn designed county courthouse is a gorgeous building and still the center of town life in Ottawa. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and built in the Romanesque style in 1893, this seat of county government is one of over a dozen designed by Washburn, often considered his most illustrious work.
