Old County Courthouse. As is more particularly described in Civic Center, the old County Courthouse was built in 1903 and served as such until the new Courthouse in the Civic Center opened in 1937. It was severly damaged by, and was boarded up and not salvaged after, a 1944 fire and was finally demolished in 1950 or 1951. The building was located between Dewey and Walker, north of Grand (Sheridan), south of Main, southwest of the Montgomery Wards Building. The 1st image below is a crop from my postcard collection and was probably taken shortly after its 1903 construction, judging by the horse & buggy and the young trees around the property. The second is from a November 27, 1944, Oklahoman article which described the fire.
