Postcard images, with views of 1886 courthouse with original clocktower and chimneys:

Photos were taken on September 20, 2008 near 4:00 p.m. This was our fifth county on a tour of south central and southeast Iowa counties following a morning event in Des Moines. We were pleased that the courthouse faced west, taking full advantage of the afternoon sun.
