“the oldest standing courthouse in Kansas”
The Chase County Courthouse is a finalist for the 8 Wonders of Kansas because its striking French Renaissance (Second Empire) style and red mansard roof make it one of the most recognizable buildings in Kansas! Completed in 1873, it's the oldest county courthouse still in use in Kansas and the second oldest in continuous use west of the Mississippi River. The courthouse was designed by noted Kansas architect John G. Haskell of Lawrence. Born in Vermont, Haskell came to Kansas in 1857 at the age of 25 and soon rose to prominence as one of the leading architects of Kansas. He was the first architect of the Kansas statehouse and designed many other important early Kansas buildings.
