Benton County Courthouse
Nothing is more symbolic of Ashland than the Benton County Courthouse. This majestic building, completed circa 1873, served the people of Benton County as their seat of government for over 125 years. Its prominent place on the elevated center of our town square is unique in the immediate surrounding area and probably the state. It was closed, as the seat of county government, on February 8, 2002.
