Henry County Courthouse

The contract for the first courthouse to be located in Mount Pleasant was ordered on February 13, 1837. Changes were made in the plans and construction was delayed. A 30 by 18 foot building was completed in 1839.

In the 1850's, the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad came to Henry County and there was need for a new county building. The second courthouse was a remodeled version of a place called "Hill Hall". The structure bore the date 1870 and was used until the present courthouse was built in 1914.
