Blackford County Courthouse Hartford City Reviews
Jun 14, 2007
While the Blackford County Courthouse would never make anyone's top 10 or top 100 places they must see before they die, it is still an interesting place to visit if you car happens to breakdown in Hartford City.
The courthouse is located in the center of the city. When I was much younger, the town square was the place to be. It was always a hub of activity, but as some factories shut down, the commercial section of the city suffered. Now instead of having various department stores living the square, it is now home to a multitude of "second hand" shops, or as my grandmother always called them "junk shops."
The courthouse itself was built in the late 1800s at a cost of around $120,000, which was big money back in those days. The most interesting things are the monuments commemorating the Black County veterans of the Civil War, WWI, WWII, Korea and Vietnam Conflicts.
If you go, you really cannot expect much traffic unless you go during Heritage Days, which is usually in June sometime.
