FOREST CITY (KWWL) -- The Winnebago County Courthouse was finished January 6, 1897.

The Romanesque style building made of red brick and trimmed with stone replaced an older courthouse.  The old structure was torn down the year before.

It was completed at a cost of $20,496.  The first courthouse was a two-room log cabin.  The second was a two-story soft brick building.
