Historic and Architectural Features The Benton Federal Building and U.S. Courthouse was constructed in 1959 from steel and block with brick veneer and clip-on aluminum panels. In 1989, the Postal Service vacated the east end of the first floor of the building. The vacant space was later converted in 1992 into a Bankruptcy courtroom, judge's chamber, and Clerk of the Court’s office.
