Postcard images, including vintage views of the 1902 courthouse:

These photos were taken May 4, 2008 near 3:20 p.m. There was construction equipment all around the courthouse, so many shots attempted to minimize construction clutter.

Interior photos were obtained April 24, 2009.  Cameras are not allowed in the courthouse without authorization - be sure to obtain permission before your visit.
