Vermillion County Courthouse

We stopped in Newport today...I wanted to take a photo of our courthouse...after seeing Noble County Courthouse, this one was a little boring. In fact, of all the courthouses I have seen around here, ours is probably the most boring to look at from the outside. It has been years since I have been inside...
I saw red, red leaves well as the other day just a house or two away from Sarah. The humidity has been down some the past few days. I am feeling fall drawing near every morn or every evening that I set outside in the swings. This year, I suppose it will be bittersweet, with both girls moving.

My older daughter has about a month of training left....she is doing well in it. Both the physical and the book learning. I wish I could remember the details of some of her physical training...I don't think I could have did it when young. The other days was this: 12 stations of calisthenics...1 min of cal then run a lap to following station....another involved an Indian run....along with all the other calisthenics. She has been pushing herself for the past 3 years and it has paid off.

I wonder if there is a story behind the difference in your courthouse like why the style was chosen or the year it was built having significance. Hmmmmmm

This autumn will mean changes for you that can't be denied. Indianapolis is not so far away, but it isn't the same. hugs hugs hugs

Hi Rose, Rachel must be in GREAT shape physically. I know you are proud of her...

It's cooler here also--and I loved waking up to my Cardinals chipping this morning. It's nice to have the house open. LOVE this cooler, less humid weather.

I used to have an interest in going around to every county and taking a picture of their courthouse--and then publishing a book... I love courthouses --but someone else will have to do that book!!!!

Have a great week.

Interesting court house. Solid but a bit staid looking. Sure looks solid though.

Your courthouse reminds me of a school or library. We have an old courthouse here that is very pretty....but no longer used as a courthouse. I will have to take photos. Princeton has a neat one, too....Dept. 56 used theirs as a model for one of their Snow Village buildings. Great news about Rachel. I know you are looking forward to seeing her. I can feel fall coming too...I'm ready.

I would guess this courthouse isn't as old as the Noble County courthouse. This courthouse isn't nearly as ornate.
I know you're proud of Rachel for doing so well in her training.

I don't think it's boring at all Rose. I really like the clock at the center.
The old courthouse in my hometown was torn down years ago. It was a huge building with turrets and I remember walking in the courtyards with my Grandma. I wish it still stood.
Continued good wishes for Rachel.

I'd as why you were inside many years ago...but maybe you don't want to tell. LOL

Rachel must be in fantastic shape!
