Conceived by Maximilian A. Orlopp, the Pulaski County Courthouse in Little Rock, Arkansas, is one of his three magnificent public building designs built in the late 1800s. The Pulaski County Courthouse, along with the Jasper County Courthouse in Carthage, Missouri, and the Dallas County Courthouse in Texas, were designed to be the focal point of the county seat. The use of towers, turrets, arches, perfectly aligned windows and asymmetrical shapes in the Richardsonian Romanesque and Romanesque Revival styles created a dramatic appearance in the skyline. Considering Orlopp's formal educational background at the United States Naval Academy and early work making railroad surveys, Orlopp's accomplishments in architecture are remarkable.
