Kankakee County Courthouse

Kankakee County Courthouse

450 E. Court St. | Kankakee, IL 60901-3917 | 815-935-7390

This 1912 Courthouse with its Beaux Arts inspired dome, dominates the downtown Kankakee skyline.  A mural depicting scenes of the county’s history embellishes the dome’s ceiling. The Kankakee County Courthouse built during the era when Beaux Arts Architecture was popular is a fine example of its style. This masterpiece is bordered by six historical churches that were built in the late 1800's.  Bring your camera and capture an outside shot of one of Kankakee County’s beautiful treasures.
