Ironton Courthouse in the Snow by 


The Ironton, Missouri Courthouse

This magnificent antebellum structure is Iron County’s first and only courthouse. It was built in 1858 with the designs of Henry H. Wright. During the Civil War it was used as a hospital. It received cannon fire during the Battle of Pilot Knob and the cannon damage has been preserved.

The population if Ironton is somewhere between 1400 and 1700, depending on which sign you want to believe. :)

I live Ironton, Missouri and I enjoy taking photos of the many things I see around town. It seems there is always something new to photograph, whether it be everything made new by a fresh layer of snow, or by the birth of a new spring. I photograph whatever it is that catches my eye.

    Love it! Such a beautiful, nostalgic building.

  • I love photographing this courthouse. If you look at the middle upper window, just towards the upper right, notice the black mark, that is where it was hit by a cannonball during the Civil War.

    OMGosh! Amazing that the cannonball didn’t do more damage. It goes to show that building is one tough well built structure. Thank you for sharing such a great part of the courthouses history.

  • It was fired from a pretty good distance, but, yes, it is a very sturdy building!
