Long Description:
The historical marker in front of the Common Pleas Court House and Park, Cape Girardeau, Missouri, was placed by the Rotary Club. The marker reads:

In 1806, Louis Lorimer ceded this plot to the city for a civic center. The present building dates from 1854. It houses city offices and court of common pleas. The cellar was a civil war prison. The park accommodates a union memorial, bandstand, and public library and at one time a fire station and produce mart. It has fostered many activities through the years - from slave auctions to religious worship.
