Sherman County Courthouse: Treasure of Art Deco style
Sherman County’s courthouse is an Art Deco triumph. Art Deco features (PDF) on the exterior include glazed tiles of metallic gold, red-brown and blue above the entrance near at the courthouse’s top. The north and south ends of the building are set out slightly from the facade in typical Art Deco fashion. The bricks are buff colored with lighter-colored tiles for contrast.
