[Chase County Courthouse] The picturesque Chase County Courthouse, the oldest in use in Kansas today, was built during 1871-73 in the Renaissance style of the Louis XIII period. The 113-feet high, three story structure is of native limestone with mansard roof, cupola, basement, walnut staircase and balustrade. The courthouse bell was hung in 1886, still sounding today, and the stone wall around the courthouse lawn was laid in 1881. The structure was built at a cost of $42,599.88. It is kept in excellent repair. The first courthouse was a small log building near the present high school.rn
