Postcard images, including the 1857 courthouse and 1959 courthouse prior to remodeling:

These photos were taken on September 28, 2008 about 11:40 a.m. on a tour of the southwest corner of Iowa. We had thick fog in the early morning, but thankfully the fog had lifted to reveal a glorious fall afternoon. We visited six county seats on this day, but finished this corner of the state.
