Casey County Courthouse - Liberty, Ky.

I've driven through Casey County a couple of times, but have never been downtown. The courthouse is pretty sweet, though it appears to need a little restoration, which I doubt will ever happen based on the huge new judicial center across the street. When we arrived in Liberty, it was getting ready to storm, and the downtown area was ominously quiet. I love storms, which is probably one of the reasons that I enjoyed photographing Liberty so much.
This courthouse was built in 1888, and was preceded by a different brick building and a log building. According to this historical marker, the use of stone trim and its asymmetrical design are unique for a courthouse.
