View of the old Court House on Main Street in Moorefield, opposite the Presbyterian Church. 'The old brick Court House on Main Street was the second Court House. This fine old building sat back about thirty feet from the side walk with an iron fence in front. This was done by the Eberlys. This building was used until 1913 when the new Court House on Washington Street was opened. It was a nice cool old building. The large trees in the yard provided nice shade for loafers on hot summer days and the well of cold fresh water is just hidden by the scales along the street. There was always several benches in the yard in the summer time. Just inside of the front door wide steps led to the main court room on the second floor. The court room had a gallery around the North, East, and South sides with Judges stand and Jury seats in the West. The gallery was held up by large iron posts. At this time (1955) some of these old iron posts are serving as porch posts at the home of Howard Williams West of town. On the first floor a passage way led around both sides of the steps and into a hall in the center of which led to the back of the building. On both sides of this hall were offices for the Sheriff, Clerk, and lawyers. Picture is from Miss Maie Alexanders Moorefields Oldest Htg. and Appl. dealer collection.'
