Located in Sandusky's Washington Park, the Erie County Courthouse was dedicated in 1875. In the 1930's, the Courthouse was remodeled in the Art Deco Style. Thousands of the persons who are buried in the cemeteries of Sandusky and Erie County have records on file at the Erie County Courthouse. Marriage records since 1838, birth and death records prior to 1909, and wills are some of the resources on file at the Erie County Courthouse in the Probate Court Division. In the Clerk of Court Offices are Naturalization records, divorce cases, and many other legal and business filings. The very earliest records have been transferred to the Center for Archival Collections at Bowling Green State University.
