St. Johns, Michigan
Completion Date | 2000

The Clinton County Courthouse was designed to fit into the historic downtown of St. Johns, Michigan. A strong desire by the community to enhance their downtown led to a design that is reflective of the late 1800s buildings lining Clinton Avenue on axis with the main entrance of the courthouse.
All county functions have been brought together under one roof for the first time in years. The City of St. Johns occupies a portion of the building.
Public departments occupy the lower floors. while courts are on the upper two floors. Security screening occurs before the public enters the elevators to the court floors.
A 911/Central Dispatch Center is also located on the lower floor with access through a walled courtyard.
