Old Courthouse by rosiekerr

Old Courthouse

An interior shot of the Old Courthouse, a historical landmark of downtown St. Louis. Built between 1839 and 1862, this is the courthouse were Dred and Harriet Scott sued for their freedom from slavery, ultimately denied to them by the US Supreme Court in the landmark 1857 case. The architecture from this time is so lovely and the building is very well preserved. It's a treat to be inside.

Sorry I have been so busy, but I hope to catch up soon. Thanks for stopping by!
Nice photo of an absolutely lovely building. Have you ever been to the Basilica in St Louis?

Nice capture and reminder of the history of Dred and Harriett Scott. Isn't there a new memorial or museum or something around town to honor them?

Lovely shot of the floors on this beautiful inside of an old Courthouse. They just don't make this kind of elegant structures any more. Beautiful. FAV

@tosee The Olympus 9-18mm f/4-5.6 ED Zuiko lens. I cheated and looked it up. ;) All I could remember was the mm numbers.
