Elko County Courthouse

Commissioned in 1910, the present Elko County Courthouse was designed by William H. Weeks and built by the Sellman brothers of western Nevada, at a cost of $150,000. The Neo-Classical building has a shallow dome and a two-story pedimented portico supported by Doric columns. A balustrade follows the roof line and accentuates an ornate cornice.
