The Dodge County Courthouse is the oldest working courthouse in Minnesota. To functionally support this historic icon, Dodge County commissioned a long-range program to determine county needs. The result of this study includes the reuse and modification of a school building for government services including county administration as well as the renovation of all courts, sheriff, jail, and county attorney functions at the existing courthouse site. With interest in historic preservation, the design honors the historic courtroom and an additional courtroom complements the original within the existing space of the historic courthouse. Focusing on security improvements, the renovations create a safer space for county and courts staff.
