Randolph County, West Virginia Courthouse located in downtown, Elkins WV
Built in 1902-1908. A Richardsonian Romanesque-style building that was designed by Uniontown, Pa., architect J. Charles Fulton. Built of locally-quarried sandstone with contrasting smooth and textured stone trim, much of it extensively carved. 150-foot tower offset by steep hip roof of red tiles, with large gables and corner turret. Engaged buttress serves as a pedestal for classical-style statue holding the scales of justice. Jail built in 1910's, also with corner tower and red tile roof.
The courthouse is located about 1 mile from the Davis & Elkins College and the historic Graceland Inn .
This photo was taken on a clear morning with very little traffic. I spent about 4 hours removing electric, telephone and cable t.v. lines, as well as stop sign, a car and a utility pole to show how beautiful this building is.
