Thebes Historical Society

On a bluff overlooking the Mississippi River sits the 1848 Thebes Courthouse.  Built by architect Henry Ernst Barkhausen, it was the Alexander County seat until 1860.  The Thebes Historical Society opens the courthouse for tours and maintains the building and grounds.  It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Right now we are opening from 8:30am - 12:30pm on Saturdays and 12pm - 4pm Sundays, weather permitting. Check our website or our facebook page for current hours.
