My Commentary:
This is one of the most impressive county courthouses I have seen. The dome is massive and can be seen for quite a distance. It is quite distinctive and a huge reason why it was included on the Grant County flag. Because of the Covid virus scare, the courthouse was closed - I would have loved to go inside and just looked around this old courthouse. The dome is in good repair. I was at the north end of the Courthouse grounds facing south when I took these photographs of the Courthouse and the dome.
