In Sidney, Richland County, Montana staff put up with dust, cold and noise 5 years ago to get this gorgeous architectural finished project. Gold leaf adorns much of the detail, marble, and rich wood surround workers now, and they told us, they like it. Now. Even if it was a challenge when the work was underway before the Centennial in 2014. One of the workers told us that during construction, the heat was turned off so it could be replaced. It was the middle of winter. People worked with their coats and gloves on.
From 1927 when it was build and 1928 when it was opened, the neo-classical styling of the Richland County Courthouse in Sidney stood above all buildings in the town except for the grain elevators a dozen blocks to the east.
Sidney and the Richland County Courthouse are perched exactly on the border between the Badlands and the Rangeland of Montana.
Since it is tall enough, from the east-facing windows, visitors can see the west-facing bluffs of the Badlands along the Yellowstone River.
