Newton County Courthouse
Erected in 1939, the Newton County Courthouse is one of the more unique courthouses in the Ozarks, combining Art Deco architecture with the region's stone building tradition. It was built with funds from the Works Progress Administration (WPA), one of the agencies of the New Deal program, which was a federal effort to provide jobs to unemployed Americans during the Great Depression (1929-1939).
