The Dundy County Courthouse, located at W. 7th Ave. and Chief St. in Benkelman, Nebraska, was built in 1921.

It is significant for association with government and for its architecture. Relative to other Nebraska "county citadel"-type courthouses, it has an unusual degree of geometric ornamentation.[2]

It was designed by architect A.T. Simmons of Bloomington, Illinois, who had previously designed the Chase County Courthouse in adjacent Chase County, Nebraska.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1990.[1]
