The Rhea County Courthouse, built in 1891 in Dayton, Tennessee, is where two legendary public figures, Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan, squared off over evolution. Much of the courthouse remains as it was in 1925, and the courtroom is still used today. The building, designated a National Historic Landmark in 1977, also houses a museum dedicated to the famous trial.
