Floyd County Courthouse in Charles City

This is Floyd County’s third courthouse in Charles City, despite several campaigns to move the county seat. It was designed by Hansen & Waggoner using a blend of Art Deco and Moderne architectural styles and built in 1940 using tan bricks, Bedford stone, and polished red granite. It is one of ten courthouses from the P.W.A. era that earned entry in 2003 to the National Register of Historic Places.
