Davis County Courthouse in Bloomfield

The first Davis County courthouse was built in 1843, hewn from logs. The courthouse business was done in several offices for 27 years after the first courthouse was abandoned. The second courthouse was designed with Second Empire architecture by T.J. Tolan & sons and built in 1877, and still serves the county today. It was constructed with walls of red bricks and faced with Bedford stone. The bell and clock in the tower are both dated 1876, and both are still working. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974.
