This beautiful historic courthouse is sited at the highest point in the area and looms over the adjacent valleys.
Prominent Ohio architect J.W. Yost designed the building about the same time as a concurrent work, the Miami County Courthouse in Troy, Ohio. The front facade of the building features a large staircase, a four-columned portico, and Greek Capitals.
The structure is a contributing property to the St. Clairsville Historic District which contains a number of significant buildings lining Main Street. The courthouse is still in use today and houses the Belmont County Court of Common Pleas.

Because of its prominent location, the building is easily visible from I-70 and is one of the first noticeable landmarks for motorists entering Ohio from West Virginia. St. Clairsville has a charming Main Street with a number of small businesses and unique buildings.
