The courthouse was completed in 1912 and is still in use today. It was designed by noted Nevada architect Frederick J. DeLongchamps, who also designed the downtown post office and other Nevada courthouses. This interesting building is in the neo-classical style and has several ornate features. Terrazzo tiled floors pave the way along the marble halls. Many famous people received their wedding licenses and divorce decrees in this old courthouse. More marriage licenses have been issued here than any other courthouse of its size in the United States. A scene from The Misfits
was filmed in front of the courthouse. Yes, Marilyn Monroe sashayed down these very steps in the 1961 movie.
