The Haskell County Courthouse was built in the Art Deco style in Stigler, Oklahoma. It is currently the hub for local county government but has lost its original majesty and may be subject to closure due to its outdated heating and cooling system. This structure also has historical significance for its controversial move of the Ten Commandments monument, originally on the lawn of the courthouse but was thought to conflict with separation of church and state so was moved 600 feet east to private property. Haskell County Courthouse was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
