Front (West) Elevation

There was major restoration work going on at the time of my visit, most of the courthouse was closed off with orange snow fence. The main street to the south of the courthouse was also closed and under construction. I hope I can get back someday, after the construction is completed, to shoot this wonderful old courthouse again.
