Historic Architecture Downtown Richmond:
A Walking Tour
401 East Main Street
Richardsonian Romanesque (1893)
Cincinnati Architect James McLaughlin was chosen to design the Wayne
County Courthouse. It was constructed by local Architect, William
Kaufman. This form of Romanesque Revival architecture was
popularized by the Boston architect H.H. Richardson and so became
known as Richardsonian Romanesque. Characteristic elements of the
this style are rock-faced stone walls using a variety of patterns in
the stonework, towers, deeply recessed windows, and large expanses
of steep hipped roofs. The massive interior stair hall is
illuminated from windows on the western façade.
This is the web-based incarnation of a brochure originally published in
2010. While the history is still
very valuable, other information may no longer be accurate.
Information updated by WayNet will be listed in this maroon color.
