Allen County Courthouse, 1930s

The largest county in the state is Allen County, for which Fort Wayne is the county seat.

Nestled in the heart of downtown is the Allen County Courthouse. An historical architectural marvel.

This unusual photo was taken as the “Gettle Building” was being constructed. Note the structural steel in the foreground.

The former “Gettle” building now has “Courtside” on its facade—and has been
renovated over the years.
