  • Old Courthouse MuseumOld Courthouse Museum Sioux Falls, South Dakota
    In 1889, construction started on the first courthouse in Minnehaha County, South Dakota, and designed by local architect, Wallace L. Dow, who had designed numerous structures in the state, including the All Saints School, Thomas B. McMartin House which is now the Pettigrew Home and Museum, and the South Dakota State Penitentiary. It made of native Sioux quartzite stone, one of the most popular building materials of the 19th century, and when finished, Dow stated that it would be the biggest courthouse between Denver and Chicago. The interior highlights granite pillars, tiled fireplaces, slate stairs and stained glass windows; but the most significant features of the structure are the 16 big murals that have been painted on the walls of the courthouse by Norwegian immigrant, Ole Running, that showed the early life in South Dakota, images of his house in Norway and natural features in the state. He was paid $500 for his marvelous works. The building would be used for county business up until 1962, when it was too small for the many activities of the court and administrative duties. The new courthouse would be constructed on the west side of the old one, which would be destroyed to make room for the parking lot. Many of the city's residents objected to the demolition, and campaigned to save the building; which happened in 1974; and it was transformed into a museum and joined with the Pettigrew House and museum that would become the Siouxland Heritage Museums. Currently, you can visit three floors of magnificent display space in the structure that houses a wonderful collection of the area's history. The second floor contains the circuit courtroom and law library with free admission. There is a marvelous museum store that sells unique and special Dakota made gifts for all your family and friends.
