The years between 1900 and 1930 produced 23 more. By the 1970s, most of the county governments in Indiana were operating out of antiquated, crowded buildings, with a handful choosing to tear down their old structures and rebuild with new materials of glass and steel. While some counties were intent on building larger facilities, most counties were determined to maintain and restore the magnificence of the courthouses of old.

This is a beautiful book which covers each courthouse in all of Indiana's ninety-two counties. Each receives two pages. The large format of the book allows for lovely color photography. The written discussion of the courthouses is quite weak, however, frequently diverging into irrelevant anecdotes. Likewise, the photographs frequently do not depict relevant aspects of these glorious buildings; rather, they focus on the "human interest" of the buildings. Although each courthouse is accompanied by an overall view of the building, the view is small and frequently difficult to read. In cases where historic courthouses have been replaced with modern buildings the modern buildings are generally ignored except in passing and sometimes even the older courthouse is not adequately depicted.

There was great potential for this book, but, sadly, as an architectural book it falls short of that potential.

This is another superb book of the QUARRY BOOKS series by Indiana University Press. Anybody who has an interest in Indiana history and enjoys late 19th/early 20th century architecture will love this book. The photographs capture not only whole views of these courthouses, but also some of their intricate details, such as inside murals, statues on the outside, and architectural elements such as columns.

A nice touch is that the location of each courthouse is shown on a county map of Indiana which may entice some readers to plan trips to see some of these courthouses.

All in all, a beautiful capturing of Indiana history and culture.

This book is slightly outdated as some court houses, such as Shoals have been replaced, but it is a wealth of information if you like Indiana history.

A very informative book about each Indiana county courthouse. Many of the narratives include interesting little-known facts supported by beautiful interior and exterior photos of the structures. The only thing I would have added had I written the book would be historical images of the courthouses like those found on old postcards. This book is an excellent addition to my Indiana collection and I recommend it to anyone interested in Indiana history and architecture.

Well done
Item as described, arrived before I expected it, no problems with the book (it's in better condition than the library copy I'd been using), so I'm thoroughly glad that I bought this copy from this seller.
