Delphi, Indiana knows it is one of my favorite towns in which to toodle around.

All those shops, all those places to eat, and that awesome canal area–well, Delphi has one more item on the list that you need to check out: The Carroll County Courthouse!

This is a beautiful work of art. On the outside, the Carroll County Courthouse is eye-catching. There’s a few monuments and memorials around the grounds in downtown Delphi.

Even with all that Indiana history kind of stuff outside, it’s not until you get to the inside that you’ll really be wowed!

Cool marble flooring, beautiful woodwork, and impressive pillars combine in classical revival style. The view from above, or up a couple of flights of stairs, is really sharp!

This courthouse may look slightly familiar to you, if you’ve been to Spencer County, that is!

The Carroll County Courthouse was built by the same guy who built the Spencer County Courthouse, in Rockport, Indiana: Elmer Dunlapp from Indianapolis.

This guy had an eye for detail. His work is just amazing! They both share an awesome feature not often found in a small town courthouse: a stained glass dome! It is as incredible as it sounds.

The Carroll County Courthouse has been on the National Register of Historic Places since 2003.

You’ll have to plan ahead a bit for this one! Since it is a government building, it is only open during business hours and closed on government holidays.
