“History”
Reviewed July 22, 2012

Don't know what to say about it except it is history. The structure is like a castle.

“The Government Castle”
Reviewed July 15, 2012

The Jasper County Courthouse is quite an edifice! The inside is as interesting as the outside, so don't just snap photos of its exterior grandeur. They still have a working elevator with an elevator operator on the inside, and some very interesting, though necessarily limited history displays in the lobby. This is a working courthouse, so be careful about opening random doors to peer in!

Reviewed May 20, 2012

Wanted to go in but closed on Sat? But just looking at if from the outside was quite worth the visit.

“History and neat architecture”
Reviewed April 24, 2012

Not worth a trip to Carthage (unless you're close), but you should definitely see the courthouse if you're in town. And take a ride in the elevator for a taste of the way it used to be.
