[Benjamin] Harrison Day Celebration at the Gibson County Courthouse in Princeton, Indiana, October 1896



The Gibson County Courthouse, made of brick and limestone, is one of ten in Indiana built in the 1880s that still stand. Judge William Harrington’s home served as courthouse from 1813-1815, followed by two other courthouses before the current one. This view, taken in an election year, shows posters of Benjamin Harrison and presidential candidate at the time, William McKinley, on display on the grounds of the county courthouse.Destination Indiana Gibson County Journe
