Osage County Courthouses- Lyndon KS

These photographs on a fine fall day are from October 17, 2009.  Lyndy, Evan and I found ourselves in Lyndon, Kansas, county seat of Osage County.  This shot shows the current courthouse, which opened in 1922.  This courthouse replaced the previous building, which is still standing next door.

This courthouse opened in 1887, replacing an even earlier one which had been built in 1875.  This is a beautiful building, and very well preserved.

This is a close up of some of the decorations on the very top of the building.  If you look closely at the top of the previous picture you can see what I zoomed in on.  This kind of ornamentation is long gone in architecture.

  1. That second building isn't in Lyndon, KS. Looks a lot like the courthouse in Cottonwood Falls though
