Pictures taken in August, 2007

Send us your pictures of old courthouses.

We will be glad to add them to this page.


Custer, South Dakota

1881 Courthouse & Museum

1875 Dr. Flick's Cabin (Museum)

Custer, Custer County, South Dakota (2007)

McPherson, Kansas

1893 Courthouse

This is a beautiful old courthouse and on the west side is a monument to James McPherson, confederate soldier. There is a Memorial Garden with a large arbor and pond with gold fish. They have monuments to each of the wars with the names of all veterans. If you are ever in Kansas, you should stop and visit.

Claiborne Parish, Louisiana

1860 Courthouse

When my cousin and I visited Claiborne Parish Court House back in 1999, it was the smallest one that I had ever seen. Only the Judges had offices there and the county clerk was on the east side of the square in a brick building. The county clerk helped us look for our families not one of the assistants. I regret that I did not take a recent photo of the courthouse. I plan to return in the near future and take that picture.
