Madison County Courthouse

category : Historic Courthouses
Madison County Courthouse The Madison County Courthouse in the small county seat of Fredericktown, Missouri (population 3,950) was built in 1899 by St. Louis architect Theodore Link. The preservation of the Courthouse is a demonstration of the capability of residents of even small counties and towns to mount a major capital undertaking. Led by the local Foundation for Historic Preservation, a 1/2 cent capital improvements proposal was presented to the voters in 1988 for the restoration of the courthouse. It passed by a 2 to 1 margin. The restoration was completed in 1992 at a cost of over 2 million dollars.
