The Carlton County District Courthouse in Carlton, Minnesota (population 862 in 2010 U.S. Census) was built in the 1920’s. We won’t be seeing new courthouses with mosaic tiling in the alcoves, wooden railings, the ironwork of the balusters any time soon so enjoy them while you still can.
Incidentally, it has been Minnesota Litigator’s experience that lawyers, from time to time, find themselves knocking around such courthouses with nothing to do for hours. Snap some pictures. Email them to Minnesota Litigator. Minnesota trial lawyers are privileged to visit interesting places across the state and it might be fun to amass a compilation of images from these important civic hubs.
