Richland County Courthouse

The Richland County Courthouse was designed by architect Thomas G. Zaugg and Associates and built in 1968. Located at 50 Park Ave. East in the county seat of Mansfield, the building is still in use and today houses the Richland County Court of Common Pleas and its probate and domestic relations divisions.

The courthouse is constructed of brick and features pre-cast concrete arches that form a portico at the building’s front. When the courthouse was first constructed it had round chandeliers hanging from the portico, which matched lights in the interior, but the chandeliers deteriorated and were later replaced by hanging lights.

Richland County is named for the rich quality of its soil.
