Johnson County Courthouse (1838-1871)

302 N. Main, Warrensburg MO 64093

The Old Courthouse (1838-1871) still stands, carefully restored, in its original location on Main Street. The period courtroom and upstairs offices pay tribute to the brave pioneers who built it. The trial of Old Drum, where George Graham Vest’s Eulogy on the Dog was delivered, took place in the courthouse in 1870.
