Postcard images, including the 1868 courthouse:

These photos were taken September 14 at nearly 6:00 p.m. This was a difficult setting, not only because the main entrance was in the shade on the east side of the building, but trees surround the courthouse - making it difficult to get a view from a distance due to obstruction from trees. This might be interesting to take photographs again once the leaves have dropped later in the fall or winter.
