Nice Washington photos

Some cool Washington images:

Washington County Courthouse (Ohio)

The Washington County Courthouse in Marietta, Ohio.

The courthouse was completed in 1902, and I believe it’s part of a larger downtown Marietta historic district on the Register of Historic Places.

As Marietta goes (oldest city in Ohio and the first settlement in the Northwest Territory) it’s actually pretty recent.

A photograph of this courthouse is already available in the U.S. County Courthouses Pool:
