Prolific architect William H. Weeks (1864-1936) designed this Neo-Classical courthouse. Like many courthouses designed at the time, this bi-laterally symmetrical building had a projecting portico in the center, supported by Ionic columns.

The Inyo County Courthouse #4 was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998 in recognition of its "integrity of feeling and association." The Eastern California Museum Association occupied space in the courthouse from 1929-1968. G. Walter and Maude Dow donated funds to build a new Eastern County Museum completed in 1968.

An annex was added to the courthouse's south side in 1965; Inyo County needed more space to house county governmental offices.
