Each of Ohio's eighty-eight counties has a courthouse. Many of them were built over a century ago and many are also listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Some are modern, some are renovated and some stand today as originally constructed over a century ago. Each courthouse is expected to meet the specific needs of its county. Despite their diversity, all of Ohio's county courthouses fulfill a central role in American society: as the seat of justice.
