This is a unique 1877 French Renaissance architecture structure with mansard roof and graceful cupola courthouse in Bloomfield, Iowa. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1974, the belfry tower houses the original 1876 Seth Thomas clock and the 1879 Meneely and Kimberly Bell. The courtroom features the original seats and bench which are still used today, and the basement still contains the cells used by the county and city jails until 1973.
