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. :)
