    Sorry it took so long, my co-pilot was feeling under the weather so we didn't get to do much exploring on Monday.
    Here's the new one built in 1997 in a county named after a fellow who was a French Indian War hero and a General in the Revolutionary War. Founded on March 11, 1848

    The old building built in 1900 is still in use so I took a pic of it as well. it's a much more interesting looking building anyhow.

    Thanks Andy. Yeah, wish I was, but only made it as far as Rella's Saturday. Rode over with three others from Harrisonburg, VA where we were at a weekend get-together.

    Just a reminder - whoever comes to get this one, please add a photo of the old court house if it has been replaced with a new building like this. One of the reasons I wanted to do this is to show the interesting architecture of the old ones. Thanks! :D

    Nice to see the tags moving around.

    Here's the new Tag:

    This county was created in 1850 from Logan County. It's name is also the name of a state in the USA, and this state is the farthest west of any state that is also used for a county name in WV.
