    Yellow Medicine County Courthouse

    by Basaic Written Jan 19, 2012

    The town of Granite Falls is in three different counties: Chippewa, Renville and Yellow Medicine. It is the county seat of Yellow Medicine County and has a population of just under 3000. Granite Falls is in Southwest Minnesota near South Dakota. Yellow Medicine County is named for the Sioux name of a plant seed that is used for medicinal purposes. The Yellow Medicine County Courthouse was constructed in 1889 by architect Frederick Hoover. Frankly, it looks kinda like a warehouse to me.
