The Jewel of Richmond Square
One of the most impressive, beautiful pieces of architecture in Ray County is its courthouse – the center of downtown Richmond – known as Richmond Square. Constructed of Bedford blue oolitic limestone and weighing about 170 pounds per cubic foot, the stone used to construct the building in 1915 was of almost unprecedented purity. The courthouse has a spacious lobby on the first floor with original black and white tile flooring. Inside the first floor south entrance are old wooden rocking chairs as well as memorials to local World War I and World War II heroes.
Outside, on the west side, is a bronze statue of Missouri lawyer, soldier and statesman Alexander Doniphan, who came to the aid of Mormons.
