The Dallas County Courthouse is located on the public square in Buffalo, MO. The original courthouse was built in 1846-47 by Levi Beckner. It was burned by Confederate troops on October 18, 1863. Most of the surviving records were destroyed by fires in 1864 and 1867. Therefore, almost no records exist before about September, 1867.

Some courthouse offices are open 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., others from 7:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., except weekends and holidays. Missouri celebrates Truman's Birthday on May 8 of each year and offices are closed on that date (Friday if it falls on Saturday, Monday if it falls on Sunday).
