Ruling from the judges on whether stone masonry work and stained glass are considered works of art?
I took this the other day when we had more snow on the ground. This is the Macoupin County courthouse, built at a cost of over a million dollars in the late 1870s. Infamous around here for bribery and corruption charges during construction. You should see the main courtroom where the dome is, ornate plaster molding work all over the place.
By the way this is the courthouse for a county that largest town (more like a village) has a population of only 6000 people. Maybe they did go a little overboard with it.
