Anderson County Courthouse - Lawrenceburg, Ky.



So . . . Anderson County has an amazing courthouse. The picture above really doesn't do it justice. I don't know a lot about architectural styles, but this building is a pretty amazing combination of the ornate and the simple. Huge cupola that rises tall above this small town, some really amazing Corinthian columns all on top of a base of irregular limestone bricks.
I couldn't find much about the courthouse online anywhere, but I found a TON about the statute in the foreground. It's one of Kentucky's many Confederate war memorials. According to Wikipedia, (sorry), it was installed in 1894, and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1997. Interestingly, the statute is not of a general - instead, it's a Confederate soldier in winter clothes.
