Postcard images, including vintage views of the 1858 courthouse:

These photos were taken September 6, 2008 at 4:30 p.m.  This was our eighth county courthouse, with three more to go before heading home. The day started with some light fog, but the sky was cloudy with some blue sky visible by this time of the day.
