Mills County, Iowa

1881 Mills County History
The Court House

      No records exist relative to the building of this structure. The original legislation, the notices, the elections, the contract, all have disappeared from the county records for reasons best known to those immediately connected with their disappearance.

      The building is a brick structure, two stories in height, the upper of which is used for court purposes. On the first floor are the offices devoted to the use of the county officials. The building was erected in 1857, and cost about forty thousand dollars, perhaps a sufficient reason for the loss of all records pertaining to it.
