Warrick Co. Court House

Court House Square, Boonville, Indiana

A handsome example of the Georgian architectural style, hallmarks of which are strict symmetry and geometrical proportions. Other characteristics of the Georgian style are:

  • axial entrances (situated around or along an axis)
  • hipped roofs (the external angle formed by the meeting of two sloping sides of a roof that have their wall plates running in different directions)
  • sash windows (the framework in which panes of glass are set in a window or door; not visible in this example because the windows have been replaced)
