  • Restored in 2013. This building now houses Jackson County records, collections, and assessment departments. This is also the location for the business personal property office of Jackson County. The Jackson County Historical Society also has an office in this building. You can enter and are free to walk around and look, as it's a public building.
  • Long wait but incredibly friendly staff, Lisa Honn was fantastic she took great care of me and everyone in the courthouse. Made the long wait seem ok because you knew she was advocating for you
  • Great place to visit. The staff here have great knowledge of the history of the area
  • Beautiful. A great job on the restoration too!
  • Super nice Sheriff's deputies. Very helpful.
