The Wilkin County Courthouse, located at 316 Fifth Avenue South in Breckenridge, Wilkin County in the U.S. state of Minnesota is a two-story Beaux Arts cream-colored brick and Bedford limestone structure with a high parapet. Over the doorway is a four-foot stone eagle, carved rosettes and garlands, and the inscription, "To None Will We Delay, To None Will We Deny, Right or Justice". Tall brick pilasters extend to the high cornice. The Saint Paul architects, Buechner and Orth designed the structure and Redlinger and Hanson were paid $203,492 to build it. Interior features include terrazzo floors, steel and bronze doors, ornamental plaster, pink Tennessee marble wainscoating, and brass trim. An interior dome is adorned with a stained glass skylight. Murals represent life in 19th century Wilkin County.
