Old Polk County Courthouse - Bartow, Florida

100 East Main Street - Built in 1909 and designed by EC Hosford.  Some new pictures of courthouse.  Polk County is celebrating its 150th birthday so during a visit to the museum last weekend I snapped a couple of pictures inside the building.

Imperial Polk County emblem.

  1. When I saw that emblem I immediately thought of you and had to snap a picture.

  2. Thank you! During the several months that I worked for the county in 2006-7, I saw it a lot.
