The courthouse

In May 2017, I spent seven days trying a case in the building off to the right of the former hotel, set back from the street - the Winona County Courthouse, built in 1889. I walked by this place many times without appreciating its heritage.

+/- 118

Still stands today as "senior" apartments.

Look out below!

I just love the pipe foot rails and handrails leading to the rungs built into the wall for escape. Would be hard pressed to make a decision to burn or fall.

Nice wagons!

Wow, those fancy people movers by the front entrance are more exciting than the usual cars people like to name. Would love to see more of them.
