Summary: This set of postcards represent the Pratt County Courthouse in Pratt, Kansas. The four-story building designed by architect George P. Washburn was constructed between 1909 and 1910. Designed in the Romanesque style the structure features square tower blocks with pyramidal shape roofs. A statue of the Roman goddess Justitia is visible over the front entrance of the roof. In 1923 fire destroyed the roof and the top two floors of the courthouse. The building still serves as a courthouse but the square tower blocks were removed and the roof is flat in appearance.
