Pennington County Courthouse, Rapid City, SD

Egg and dart moldings like this were first found on the Erechtheion, a temple found on the north side of the Acropolis in ancient Athens, and subsequently  in classical Roman architecture and on into modern times.
The Pennington County courthouse was designed and built using classical style architecture popular for monumental public buildings in the 1920s.
