Monroe County was created in 1854, and Sparta became the county seat. The present building is the third Monroe County courthouse and replaced an 1863 courthouse. It was constructed in 1895 at a cost in excess of $50,000. Chicago architect Mifflin E. Bell designed this courthouse in the Romanesque Revival style, which was popular for civic architecture in the 1890s.
The building was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
