Crittenden County Court House

This Court House was built in 1871, the third building constructed on this site.
It served the county from 1871 until 1961, when it was torn down and the Court House we have today was built.
The small building on the left of the Court House was built in 1843 and it housed the County Clerk's office and records.
Crittenden County was fortunate that the county records were kept in this building, thus being safe from the fires that
destroyed the first courthouse.
