Adair County Courthouse

Greenfield’s unique Courthouse, built in Romanesque style and listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981, was constructed in 1891 after the original was destroyed in a fire. The Courthouse was designed by S.E. Maxon. The country’s wars have taken their toll on artifacts surrounding the structure. A gazebo on the south lawn was burned during a WWI victory celebration and cannons that once decorated both entrances were melted down during a WWII scrap iron drive.
