$40,000 in Federal funds in 1938-1939. The architects were Riggin Buckler and G. Corner
Fenhagen; the builder, Seymour Ruff & Sons, all of Baltimore. A fair description of the first
courthouse, which with the addition is still the seat of county government, is given by the
editor of the Howard County Inventory of County and Town Archives as follows:

The general exterior appearance of the courthouse is simple, dignified, and pleas-
ant. The architecture, while of Greek inspiration, evidences only a few classic features.
The proportions of the structure are good and the windows are generous. The facade
has little ornamentation, and no columns adorn the doorway which is set off by heavy
stone blocks and a well-marked lintel. A small belfry surmounts this end of the
structure.12
