National Historic Landmark -- Winfield, West Virginia -- Putnam County
Architect Frank Pierce Milburn in 1900 designed for Putnam County a Romanesque Revival courthouse building anchored on each corner by octagonal towers. The west tower stands taller that the others and holds a large clock. From 1953 to 1974, a series of additions doubled the size of the courthouse. A 1921 monument on the northeast lawn holds a World War I Doughboy statue, set atop a pillar of Vermont granite, and is inscribed with a list the dead from each military branch.
