Iowa's Courthouses: A Photographic Journey

Home: Iowa Map

The First Steps of the Journey

The first photographs of the Taylor County Courthouse in Bedford initiated the Courthouse Project on August 26, 2008.  During the first week of the project, I grabbed quick photos in the counties through which I frequently drive. But the quest intensified on August 30, when large chunks of our weekends were spent driving from county seat to county seat until October 11, 2008 when the 99th county was photographed.
