Description

ARCHITECT: Joseph WIlliam Royer
LOCATION: Urbana, IL
COMPLETION YEAR: 1901
BUILDING TYPE: Municipal

The new courthouse, designed in the Romanesque Revival style, cost the county $150,000. The focal point of the structure was its 135-foot high tower. Consequently, this clock/bell tower was battered by lightning strikes resulting in the eventual loss of the original battements in 1952 (Champaign County Government, 2006). Due to the lightning strikes, the tower was lowered to 85 feet and talks of renovation ensued. “Through private donations from County residents, $1.154 Million was raised to pay for rebuilding the clock and bell tower to its original 1901 height” (Champaign County Government, 2006).
