old new castle county courthouse

I visited the little town of North East, Maryland, over the weekend, and came across a great bunch of small restaurants and shops. I stopped in one shop, and found a post card of Delaware's major courthouse in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Once upon a time, where a statue of Caesar Rodney is now prominently on display in the center of Wilmington, was the New Castle County Courthouse:

from 1880 to the 1920s, the stately looking New Castle County Court House was the place to go for justice in Northern Delaware.

I think I like the exterior of this building better than the present courthouse. It has a sense of stateliness about it.
