BENTONVILLE -- Benton County has assembled a team officials hope will turn plans for a new courthouse into a reality.

Old post office

Benton County owns the old post office building on the northeast corner of the downtown square in Bentonville. It was built in 1935 and later acquired by the county for office space. The building houses Benton County Circuit Judge Brad Karren’s court. County officials have seen several concepts for a new courts building on the site, with some preserving the building and others razing it.
