Noted Portland architect Warren Heywood Williams produced the design for the Wasco County Courthouse #1 in The Dalles, OR, constructed between 1882 and 1884. The building had a mélange of stylistic details, including some vestigial Georgian Revival details, seen in the coursed brickwork of the first floor and pediments at the roofline as well as Italianate features, most specifically the tall, thin arched windows. The building had a the general formal restraint of a Neo-classical building, with some touches retained from prominent Victorian styles, such as the complex cupola/clocktower roof that almost had a mansard appearance.
