A B&W close-up of the ornate stair railings found inside the Tippecanoe County Courthouse. Built in 1882,the Tippecanoe County Courthouse is on the National Register of Historic Places and is truly a treasure. The architectural style suggests the influence of Baroque, Gothic, Georgian, Victorian, Beaux Arts, Neo-Classical, and Second Empire styles. A major restoration began in 1991. The two year project cost over $15 million.

Wowza, wowza, wowza! Excellent details, lines and the tones are just outstanding, Rona! What an amazing blend of architectural styles. I'm always in awe of architects who have such amazing ideas swirling around their heads and then, can pull it off so flawlessly...speaking of which, so did you with this capture! WTG!

Congratulations on your beautiful finalist Rona. Good to see the restoration work. You don't appreciate what you have until you've lost, as we certainly know, after losing many many heritage buildings in our recent earthquakes.

So happy to see this one back! I just love the marvelous tones and the intricate design work detail captured in this one! What a marvelously rich historical site this must be - well worth every penny of the restoration cost to preserve it for many more generations. Congratulations, Rona, on another well-deserved Finalist!

=( Sorry, Rona. After commenting and clicking the Submit button, I got an error message. Said to hit "back", so I did~as you can see I had to do it many times before it went thru, but I didn't know it would repeat my messages like that. I've cluttered your thread page. =(
