The Utah County Courthouse is a historic building dating back to the 1920?s. It resulted when citizens of Provo City and Utah County voted bonds for the establishment of a county building and a new joint city in Provo. The two parties agreed that the county must pay and occupy two-thirds of the building while the city pays one third.

The building?s cornerstone was laid in front of a large crowd on December 14, 1920. The structure was only finally completed in 1926. It amounted to $576,495.30

Today, the building has become a work of art. Using a Neoclassic design, its features are inspired by Greek buildings like the temple of Minerva. Its historical and cultural significance are further emphasized as it plays home to the Utah County Convention and Visitors Bureau.
