Postcard images, including the 1876 courthouse:

These photos were taken August 31 about 2:00 p.m. This was our first trip to north central Iowa, gathering a few counties after I got home from church. This was one of the few courthouses that was not located in the downtown business area of the city, but very easy to locate near the intersection of Highway 20 and 69.
