Postcard images, includes 1891 Courthouse and 1957 addition:

These photos were taken September 13, 2008 around 11:00 a.m. This was our fifth courthouse out of 14 county seats for that day. The day started with a persistent light rain, so we wer glad to be able to walk around to get photos without rainfall. As you can see, the construction was still ongoing on this beautiful new courthouse, which includes a replica of the prior courthouse's bell tower.
