Our exhibit, 50 Years of Service: the Harvey County Courthouse will open on Saturday, March 21, 2015. Although this exhibit has a lot of photos, it was really difficult to find actual objects to include.
We did find a few, and the photo below is a detail of one of the objects in the exhibit. It looks like some sort of animal devouring something. It is metal and very heavy.
This seal would have been used on official District Court documents.

The exhibit, on-line exhibit and oral histories are funded in part by a grant from the Kansas Humanities Council, a non-profit cultural organization promoting understanding of the history, traditions, and ideas that shape our lives and build community.
