Federal-style architecture occurred in the US between 1780 and 1830. The Polk County Courthouse uses this style, even though it wasn't constructed until 1900.

The period is associated with the early Republic, and the establishment of the national institutions of the United States. The founders of the United States consciously chose to associate the nation with the ancient democracies of Greece and the republican values of Rome. This was a deliberate and marked contrast with the Gothic style, which was used for many English public buildings and associated with feudalism. Federal style takes influence from the Georgian Neoclassical style, but differs in its use of plainer surfaces with attenuated detail. The Bald Eagle was a common symbol used in this style, with the ellipse a frequent architectural motif.
