7 Shelby County Courthouse in Memphis, Tennessee

An unexpected surprise for fans of Neoclassical architecture is the Shelby County Courthouse. Complimenting the 17 Ionic columns in front are six marble sculptures. These seated figures are allegories for Wisdom, Justice, Liberty, Authority, Peace and Prosperity. The courthouse anchors a cluster of civic buildings including the Central Police Station, Memphis City Hall, U.S. District Court and the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis Memphis Branch.
