About the County Courthouse
Henry County Courthouse located in New Castle, Indiana and was originally built between 1865-1869 with an annex addition in 1905. The Henry County Commissioners wanted a fireproof building after the old courthouse burnt down in 1865. The architect Isaac Hodgson provided this along with a mansard roof and a 110-foot clock tower. The roofing was an unusual design for a public building of the 1860s. Henry County courthouse was most likely the first to secure this kind of roofing in the midwest.
My name is Matthew D. Friend. I am the Henry County Coordinator. I live in Arkansas, so I cannot do personal lookups for you; however, I'm available to do lookups for any census for the county. I'm hoping to transcribe some new information that isn't available here. So stay tuned for future updates.
