Monroe County Courthouse in Albia

This is Monroe County's third courthouse, built in 1902. Its architect was Oliver O. Smith, whose work included the Des Moines Library, Iowa Historical Building, several buildings at the Iowa State Fair grounds. The courthouse was built with stone using classical revival and Romanesque architectural style.
A tall Civil War statue stands prominently on the courthouse lawn.
