Sadly, this gorgeous building went up in flames in August. What makes it even more sad is the fact that they were finally trying to restore the building when the fire occurred. The news article I cite as a reference states that they will rebuild the historic courthouse, but as of now, do not think that the building was insured for the amount it would take to rebuild.
