The Searcy Municipal Courthouse, formerly the Searcy Post Office is a historic government building at Gum and Arch Streets in downtown Searcy, Arkansas. It is a two story brick building with Renaissance Revival styling. The central bays of its main facade are articulated by paneled Corinthian pilasters, with large two-story windows flanking a two-story entrance, all set in recessed segmented-arch openings. The shallow hipped roof has elongated eaves with large brackets. The building was designed by Oscar Wenderoth and built in 1914, and is the only high-style Renaissance Revival building in White County.

The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1992.
