Judge's bench made with carved wood
The judge's bench - beautifully carved details. The bench, rail, and gallery seating are original furnishings.
View with old record books in foreground; interior wall brick with arch over window in background
Many nooks and crannies are used for storage. This area shows the interior brick, arched over a window, as well as beautifully leather bound records.
Clapper and bell in the bell tower.
The clock and bell were installed in 1909. The bell needs to be rotated occasionally - note the discolored area from years of striking
