On February 17, 1859 Ford County became the 102nd and last county to be established in the State of Illinois. The county's first permanent courthouse was completed on February 13, 1862. The existing courthouse was built in 1906. In order to settle a dispute between Paxton and Gibson City as to where the new courthouse should be located, the old courthouse was "remodeled". When the old building was torn down, one wall in the basement was left standing. The new building was built upon and around it, thus ending the argument.

 

Located in East Central Illinois the county offices can be found at the following locations:

 

Courthouse, 200 W. State, Paxton
Hours: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
