The Montgomery County Courthouse located in Mount Ida was the last of three Arkansas courthouses designed by architect Clyde Ferrell. Commissioned in 1923, the building is of the Neoclassical design common to government buildings. This two-story building, however, was executed in rough fieldstone. This blending of rustic fieldstone and classical design elements makes it unique among Arkansas courthouses. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976.
