I had reason to be in the Boone County Courthouse recently. (See an exterior photo in this post.) As Indiana courthouses go, it’s a relatively new one, completed in 1911.

At the center of its main floor tiles were arranged with an arrow pointing north. I always wonder how accurate such markers are. Given the courthouse’s placement on the city’s downtown street grid, this arrow points in a northerly direction, at least.

  1. I had forgotten this. I spent several hours at that courthouse one evening after hours waiting on a jury to reach a verdict. I killed time by walking around all over the inside of the building as we were the only ones there. As one not crazy about heights, I remember wondering if anyone had ever gone over that 3rd floor railing.
