Old Fayette County Courthouse (c1892)
View of the old County Courthouse, looking west across Temple Avenue from the Turner Hotel (second floor of Harkin's Store).
The year is about 1892.  Nearly 20 years later (March 1911), a fire started on this side of the street.
Fanned by high winds, it raged out of control and consumed the courthouse and most of the town.
Fayette County Courthouse (2004)
The citizens of Fayette made a fast recovery and built a new courthouse on the same spot about 1912.
Here is how the courthouse appeared in 2004 after a recent renovation.
