THE APPANOOSE COUNTY COURTHOUSE : CENTERVILLE, IOWA : (1915)

This vintage real photo postcard features the Appanoose County Courthouse. The building is located in the county seat of Centerville, Iowa. The courthouse was selected to be on the National Register of Historic Places in 1981. The cornerstone was laid in 1903 and the building was dedicated in 1904. The Courthouse has a two-stage central clock tower. Worth noting is that in the background are two interesting advertising signs. Note the signs for “Coca Cola” and for an “Automobile and Buggy” shop.  A third sign is also evident but it is partially obscured by the courthouse. The sign appears advertise the “Davison Brothers Hardware” store. The postcard message is from a wife to her husband. She was away from home and reporting on her trip. The postcard appears to be from circa 1915 and is in very good condition (see scans).
