Description: The new Hanson County Courthouse in Alexandria was dedicated on May 21, 2010. The new courthouse is a single story modern building with a low pitched hip roof except in the front where there is a gable roof above the double glass doors. The front entry has pillars on each side of the entry which supports an entablature bearing the words "Hanson County Courthouse." The wood frame building with a brick veneer was built by the Puetz Corporation of Mitchell, SD, and cost approximately $3,000,000.

History: Hanson County was established by the territorial legislature in 1871. The county seat was temporarily located at Old Fort James and named Rockport. The first election was held in 1873 with 16 votes being cast. This courthouse is the third Hanson County Courthouse at this site. The first courthouse built in 1885 served until it was destroyed by an accidental fire on October 6, 1901. The second courthouse, built in 1904, served until it was demolished on November 1, 2008, after the building became structurally unsound.
