Searcy County Courthouse

I like old courthouses sitting on the town square, but our county has to have one of the ugliest in the country. The building is very plain and has later additions grafted onto one side. However, the worst thing about it in my opinion is that it's just plopped down in a sea of asphalt. That little bit of grass out front is all there is. Courthouses are supposed to be build atop a raised area so that they dominate the town square. And, there's supposed to be a courthouse lawn with tree and well-kept beds for flowers and shrubs.
