Photographer's Note:
[Above] Entrance to the balcony - The original paint and gold flower trim is still in good condition and waiting to be restored. The top floor jail, in use until 1960, is to the left outside this door.

[Below] The centrally located two-story district courtroom has been cut in half over the years. While the bottom floor of the courtroom has been modernized, the upper floor balcony section sits in ruins. - Terry Jeanson
