responsible for establishing local district public

the State Public Defender System was reorga-

    The Missouri Supreme Court Building, located across the street from the Capitol, was built with
$400,000 in funds appropriated following the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis. Construction began in
1905 and was completed two years later.
    The three story, red brick building is of French Renaissance architecture with white stone pillars
at each wing of the front facade, white stone trim, and a sloping slate roof. The main feature of the
building’s large lobby is a massive marble staircase.
    There are two courtrooms on the second floor of the building, and both have extensive mahogany
furnishings purchased when the structure was built.
    Office space is provided for the seven judges. Originally, the offices also served as apartments for
the judges, who lived in their hometowns and came to Jefferson City part of the year to hear cases.
Now, most of the rooms have been converted into small offices for law clerks.
    On the first floor, office space is provided for the Attorney General and the clerk of the Supreme
Court. A two-story library runs the entire length of the building and contains more than 110,000 vol-
umes.
    When the Capitol burned in 1911, the governor’s office was moved temporarily to the building,
and one of the courtrooms served as the Senate chamber.
